Mar 29 2023 Share

The Malta International Airport has launched its flight schedule for summer 2023, spoiling holidaymakers to a choice of more than 100 routes in 32 countries. 

A brand new route will be opened between the Maltese islands and the Bavarian town of Memmingen to be operated by Ryanair on a biweekly basis to strengthen connection with Germany. 

Meanwhile, the return of Eurowings with flights to Hamburg and Dusseldorf following a five year-absence was announced. The resumption of weekly flights to the Black Forest town of Baden-Baden and its therapeutic hot springs was also announced. 

‘A holiday on the French Riviera will be easier to plan this summer as Air Malta will operate flights to Nice every Monday and Friday throughout the season’ the airport revealed in a statement. 

And just a short distance away from the seaport city are Antibes and Cannes as well as Saint-Tropez. 

‘Nice is just one of Malta International Airport’s connections with France, with other connections including up to six daily flights to Paris, biweekly flights to the wine capital Bordeaux in the south-west of the country, and two weekly flights to the north-western city of Nantes.’ 

The airport’s top market, Italy, remains the most well connected for the season, with a route network connecting Bergamo, Milan, Bari, Naples and Sicily. 

The flight schedule also includes Scandinavia through flights to Denmark, Norway and Sweden as well as the Middle East through Israel and Dubai. Find out the full schedule here

Amsterdam warns young British men looking for ‘messy night’s to stay away

Amsterdam warns young British men looking for 'messy night's to stay away
Mar 29 2023 Share

The city of Amsterdam has just launched a new campaign targeting young British men, and Dutch men of a similar age, who want a messy weekend so that they ‘stay away.’

Research has suggested that 18 to 35 year old Dutch and British men tend to cause most nuisance in the red light district through ‘stag parties, pub crawls and all-night drink and drug benders.’

This is making life unbearable for residents, leading to the campaign being launched this week. 

It will be triggered when people in Britain enter terms into search engines such as ‘stage party Amsterdam’ or ‘pub crawl Amsterdam’ or even ‘cheap hotel Amsterdam.’ 

Warning video adverts which list risks and consequences of excessive alcohol and drug intake, which include a tainted criminal record as well as hospitalisation, health damage and fines. 

Deputy mayor for economic affairs and the inner city Sofyan Mbarki said that the city was doing more than other European countries to reject irresponsible growth. 

“Visitors are still welcome, but not if they misbehave and cause nuisance. As a city, we are saying: we’d rather not have this, so stay away,” he said in a press statement.

Meanwhile, a ‘How To Amsterdam’ drive will also include posters, screens in hotel lobbies and hosts approaching people to remind them of manners. Apart from this, an earlier closing for brothels and bars will kick off this weekend as well as a ban on cannabis smoking in public in central Amsterdam from May.
