Air Malta carried 230,000 passengers on Malta routes in July
Air Malta was last month one of the main contributors to the growth registered by Malta International Airport.
During July the Maltese airline carried over 8,000 passengers on its Catania-Vienna, Catania-London Southend and Cagliari-London Southend routes.
Figures released by Air Malta show that during the month of July it registered a 27 per cent increase in passengers on its Malta-based routes compared to the corresponding month last year. During this month, a total of 228,982 passengers were carried by Air Malta to and from Malta.
Paul Sies, Air Malta’s chief commercial officer, said, “Month on month we are seeing double digit growth figures. Our growth strategy that saw us expand our services to 21 new markets is bearing fruit. Forward bookings continue to remain strong for summer but we need to continue selling the additional capacity we floated on the market.”
Air Malta’s chairman Charles Mangion added, “We are happy with these results that show that for the third consecutive month we have increased passengers substantially. Apart from increasing our revenues we need to maintain focus on our costs such as fuel prices which have continued to increase this year.”
