With airlines gobbling up and expanding into as many routes as possible this year, Ryanair has made its bid with new routes connecting Milan, Liverpool and Gothenburg to Malta. The move looks to be an attempt to exploit Easyjet's recent withdrawal from similar routes, but whatever the case, the increased competition will benefit the cost conscious traveler all the same.
Ryanair is adding Milan, Liverpool and Gothenburg to its Malta routes.
Starting at the end of March, there will be daily Ryanair flights between the island and Milan Bergamo, the low-cost airline’s deputy chief executive Michael Cawley told a press conference.
Liverpool will have three weekly flights to/from Malta while Gothenburg in Sweden will have two.
Ryanair will operate 30 Malta routes in its next summer schedule, including the three new ones, amounting to 170 weekly flights to and from the island. All 27 of last summer’s routes will be retained.
