Malta Airport celebrated on 20 June the inaugural flight of Brussels Airlines’ twice-weekly flights to the European capital with this fantastic cake.
- Brussels Airlines expanded its seasonal offering with two new services from Brussels (BRU), both of which are operated twice-weekly using its 132-seat A319s. On 20 June, the carrier inaugurated the 1,857-kilometre sector to Malta (MLA), which will be served (Fridays and Sundays) until 12 September. Two days later, on 22 June, Brussels launched flights (Wednesdays and Sundays) to Cagliari (CAG), which will be operated until 31 August. While the service to Italy was last served in November 2008, flights to Malta were resumed following a 24-year hiatus. The flag carrier will face competition only on the operations to the Mediterranean island, from Air Malta’s daily flights.
