Qatar Airways announces direct service to Valletta, Malta

0a1a-67

Qatar Airways is pleased to announce that it will launch direct services to Valletta, Malta, starting 4 June 2019, marking the airline’s first gateway to Malta and the latest addition to its rapidly-expanding European network.

The Valletta route will be served with an A320 aircraft, with daily services in summer and four-times-weekly flights in winter.

Valletta, a city with a rich historical and cultural past, offers much for visitors to explore, including some of Europe’s finest baroque architecture as well as many museums. Visitors can admire the striking views of Malta’s Grand Harbor, often described as the most beautiful in the Mediterranean, or stroll the cobbled streets of the fortified capital, lined with honey-colored limestone buildings, fine palaces, shops and cafés.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are tremendously excited to announce the launch of direct services to Malta, one of Europe’s architectural gems and a key new addition to our European network.

“This new direct route demonstrates our commitment to enhancing connectivity for both business and leisure travelling to and from Europe, which we have enhanced during the past year with the launch of non-stop services to Prague, Kyiv, Skopje and many more.

“We look forward to introducing travellers from around the world to this captivating city.”

Passengers travelling to Malta in Business Class can look forward to relaxing in one of the most comfortable, fully-lie-flat beds, as well as enjoy the five-star food and beverage service, which is served ‘dine-on-demand’. Passengers can also take advantage of the airline’s award-winning in-flight entertainment system, Oryx One, offering up to 4,000 entertainment options.

Qatar Airways currently operates a modern fleet of more than 200 aircraft via its hub, Hamad International Airport (HIA) to more than 160 destinations worldwide.

A multiple-award-winning airline, Qatar Airways was named ‘World’s Best Business Class’ by the 2018 World Airline Awards, managed by international air transport rating organisation Skytrax. It was also named ‘Best Business Class Seat’, ‘Best Airline in the Middle East’, and ‘World’s Best First Class Airline Lounge’.

As part of its continued expansion plans, Qatar Airways plans to launch an array of exciting new destinations over the coming months, including Gothenburg, Sweden and Da Nang, Vietnam.
