Air Malta (Luqa), Malta’s National Airline, is planning to open up a new route to Oran, Algeria’s second largest city. The twice weekly frequency is expected to operate every Monday and Thursday from July 20 to August 31.
Starting from its modest beginnings with 53,500 passengers transported in the first year of operation, Air Malta now carries an average of 1.8 million passengers every year and has, since its first flight operated on April 1, 1974, transported over 39 million passengers to and from Malta.
