Getting To Malta

The Maltese Archipelago lies virtually in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea, some 93kms south of the Italian island of Sicily. Yet Malta is just a few hours’ flying time from most mainland European cities and has excellent intercontinental connections. Choose from scheduled services or charter flights, many of which offer a convenient departure point from European regional cities.

The Maltese Islands are only a few hours away from major European cities by air. The national airline, Air Malta, operates flights to and from all the major airports in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. Malta is also served by several low-cost airlines which operate to and from key cities serving incoming tourists as well as second airports near major European capitals.

Information on Air Malta flight schedules is available online at, or by contacting Air Malta’s Head Office or a Sales Office near you.

Other international carriers operate regular scheduled flights to and from Malta. Charter flights from various cities in Europe are also available. For further details about airline carriers operating to Malta visit
