Over recent months, Air Malta’s charter business has seen “good growth” with several high-profile flights organised for film and TV crews, sport teams, private charters and Government business.
Indeed, yesterday, the national carrier successfully operated three charter flights to Kristensand, Norway. The flights, flown within one hour of each other, were organized on behalf of Viking Cruises and carried their crew members to this port city in southern Norway.
Such flight operations, another example being two flights operated from Dublin to Malta on behalf of Latina Pictures, are part of a wider charter business Air Malta has taken this year to better utilise its capacity.
The flights transported the film production equipment and crew to Malta.
Air Malta was also commissioned to operate three flights from Malta to Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands, for the crew to continue the film’s production there. Since March, and again last week, Air Malta operated charter flights for the Armenian national football team for their away fixtures in Switzerland, Croatia, and Sweden.
The Airline also operated a charter flight for the Swedish national women football team for their fixtures in Malta. Commenting on this business’ potential Roy Kinnear, Air Malta’s Chief Commercial Officer said, “At a time when traditional travel has seen a decrease, we focused our attention on other growth opportunities including charter services.
“Due to our available capacity and a corresponding increase in flexibility, we were able to attract new business and opportunities from a diverse set of clienteles. We are very pleased to have a further nine confirmed charter flights lined up to operate in June, as well as numerous other opportunities under negotiations for later in the year.”
Air Malta’s charter product offers clients flexible and dedicated flight planning, a vast choice of airports, specific cargo requirements, committed flight timings, and dedicated special catering in line with customer requirements.
