New Route to Malta Starts in October
Ryanair has added yet another new route to its rapidly expanding portfolio from Belfast International Airport.
As revealed in last month's issue of Northern Ireland Travel News, Europe's No 1 airline is launching a new route from Belfast to Malta, with a twice weekly service beginning in October, as part of its winter 2017 schedule which will go on sale soon.
Ryanair celebrated its new Belfast–Malta route by releasing seats for sale across its European network at prices starting from just £9.99 for travel in March and April.
Ryanair’s Head of Communications, Robin Kiely said: “We are pleased to announce a new route from Belfast to Malta, with a twice weekly service starting in October, as part of our Belfast winter 2017 schedule, which will be launched soon.
"Our summer schedule, which commences in March, is already attracting record bookings, including our new routes to Faro, Lanzarote, Malaga, Tenerife and Warsaw. Belfast customers and visitors can look forward to even lower fares when they make advance bookings for their summer or winter holidays, so there’s never been a better time to book a low fare flight.
Belfast International Airport’s Business Development Director, Uel Hoey said: “We are delighted to see Ryanair continue to grow from Belfast International Airport with the addition of their fourteenth route since commencement of operations in summer 2016.
"A new service to Malta is a particularly pleasing development as it has traditionally been a good seller from Northern Ireland, and we believe that its popularity will be even more enhanced given the prevailing strength of the western and central Mediterranean holiday markets.”
A Belfast-Malta flight has previously been operated by low cost rivals easyJet.
