Number of visitors from Portugal to Malta expected to increase

The number of people flying to Malta from Portugal is expected to more than double by the end of next year when the national airline Air Malta increases the frequency of its flights.

In comments to TVM the Chairman of the Malta Tourism Authority, Gavin Gulia, who is accompanying the delegation led by President Marie Louise Coleiro Preca to Lisbon, said that Air Malta began operating direct flights to and from Lisbon and Malta in March, with two flights per week. He said that the airline would continue these routes in winter and double the frequency of the flights to four in the summer of 2019.
This will lead to the number of people travelling to Malta to increase from 9,000 (the projected number who will travel to Malta by the end of this year) to 20,000.
