Airline Ryanair is to add five brand new routes to Malta, linking the Malta International Airport to 55 other airports by March.
The new destinations are: Bordeaux in France, Bournemouth in the south of England, Lisbon in Portugal, Shannon in Ireland and Stockholm in Sweden.
Speaking during a media conference, Ryanair’s Chief Executive Michael O’Leary stated that the market has made a great recovery following the COVID-19 pandemic.
The five new destinations have been selected as the demand saw an increase in passengers wanting to come to Malta.
Addressing the pressures imposed by the Ukraine and Russia war, O’Leary said that the company strongly considers the European proposal for an environment-related increase in tax. It said it will still remain committed to providing the public the best service at the lowest rates possible.
