Over 12,000 passengers travelled on Air Malta last weekend in what the airline described as a record 48 hours performance, far superior to any results from these past years.

In just two days, the airline operated over 80 flights achieving an average seat load factor of 93%.

“This is a great achievement by all our staff and especially in the areas of commercial and operations! It was our best weekend over the last two years surpassing even mid-August figures of the past two years which are usually the airline’s best performing period,” Paul Sies, Chief Commercial Officer at Air Malta said.

“This performance is even more significant particularly when we note that it surpassed our performance two years ago when we operated with two more aircraft and there is more competition from other airlines on our more popular routes.”

Sies said that, undoubtedly, Air Malta played a crucial and essential role in providing air connectivity to and from the Maltese islands.

“Some of our flights, including those to/from Switzerland and Russia, ran with over 95% load factors. This is good news for the airline and even better is that we believe to surpass this figure in the next weekends,” he added.
