Maltese carrier Air Malta is to begin operating charter flights to UK regional airports later this year.

According to news reports issued on Wednesday, the service will begin in the spring and will include flights to seven regional airports in Britain: Cardiff, Birmingham, Exeter, Bristol, Norwich, Glasgow and Newcastle.

The routes between Malta International airport and Exeter, Glasgow, Bristol, Norwich and Newcastle will operate once weekly on Tuesdays, whilst flights to Cardiff and Birmingham will operate twice weekly on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Air Malta's chief commercial officer, Philip Suanders, said in a statement that Air Malta has recoginised the UK as one of Malta's leading visitor markets and that the new summer charter service would help to further boost the number of Britons visiting the island each year. He went on to add that the move would also make it much easier for Maltese passengers to visit different regions in the United Kingdom.

Officials noted in a press release that new service joins the carrier's existing scheduled routes from Heathrow, Manchester and Gatiwick airports.
