Air Malta will be introducing a new service between Catania and Vienna following the bankruptcy and immediate withdrawal of Niki from this popular market.
The Maltese national carrier will operate a twice weekly service from Malta to Vienna via Catania every Tuesday and Friday. The new scheduled service will come into effect on January 19, 2018.
This announcement is a significant step towards the growth strategy and development of a second hub on our neighboring Island of Sicily. The introduction of this service is an excellent opportunity for Air Malta to explore new opportunities and start positioning the airline as a leading carrier connecting the islands to important regions in Europe and across the Mediterranean.
In June 2017, Air Malta held a social media contest to design a special livery for Airbus A319 9H-AEJ. The A319 (above) is currently being operated in a mostly all-white condition which is expected to change pending the application of this special design, now being finalized.
Here is the announcement and the winning design:
