80% of Malta’s pre-pandemic travel routes recovered as measures ease

80% of Malta’s pre-pandemic travel routes recovered as measures ease
Apr 6 2022 Share

This morning, Tourism Minister Clayton Bartolo revealed that 80% of the air travel routes Malta had before the pandemic have been reconfirmed. 

This comes as more measures are eased, not just for travel, but also masking, vaccination, etc. The news made international headlines as the island, a popular tourist site for many voyagers, are gearing up for the summer period. 

Deputy Prime Minister Chris Fearne highlighted the COVID-19 exit roadmap  and that, despite an increase in daily cases, Malta was deemed to have the lowest rate of COVID ITU occupancy by the ECDC.

Travelling to and from Malta saw some ups and downs throughout the pandemic’s entire run. Setbacks came as the Omicron variant was introduced late last year, pushing Malta to put countries into its dark red zone list. 

Now, as of April 11th 2022, incoming tourists travelling to Malta from a red list country will be allowed in with a negative PCR test taken up to 72 hours prior to arrival. 

Fearne also confirmed that as of 10th April 2022, a vaccine certificate will no longer be needed for persons to attend standing outdoor events. This would draw in lots of party-loving tourists, who make their way here for leisure and recreation. 

The easing was welcomed by both the Malta International Airport and the Malta Hotels and Restaurants Association, who were subject to several setbacks throughout the pandemic as it impacted businesses. 

‘We are committed that the coming months will generate excellent results in terms of tourism inflows as well as ascertain our ultimate goal of making Malta a hub of tourism excellence for the years to come’ said Bartolo.
