For a number of years Air Malta has operated charters and scheduled flights to Bucharest and Cluj in Romania.
Seeing new market opportunities and growth in this region, this summer Air Malta will start also operating a series of charter flights to Timisoara, an industrial city situated on the western Romanian border. The catchment area also includes South-East Hungary and Northern Serbia. The charter flights from Timisoara will operate on Friday night for nine weeks in the peak July and August months. The flights are contracted with local agent Viva Travel and in consolidation with 10 local tour operators and travel agents.
Speaking on this operation, Mark Camilleri, General Manager Sales UK, Charters & Airports said, „We are confident that Air Malta's new operation from Timisoara would generate additional traffic from this new region. We hope that we continue to grow and expand charter services from other new destinations and regions in the near future.” (independent.com.mt)
