A newly-wedded couple celebrated their marriage by taking a romantic flight from Malta that looped in heart shapes over the Mediterranean.

Online tracking services showed the plane had departed Malta International Airport flying in a heart-shaped flightpath around the island. In another circuit as it approached the airport, it created a second heart shape over the Mediterranean.

Flight KM14JC’s romantic route was partly solved by Malta International’s arrivals board, which listed the flight’s status as “JUST MARRIED”.

An Air Malta spokeswoman confirmed that a newly-married pilot and member of the cabin crew had been celebrating their wedding, which had taken place at the airport earlier in the day.

“He is a pilot and she is a member of the cabin crew. They were joined on the flight by family, friends and colleagues who had been at the wedding,” she told Sky News.

“I think it was a very romantic flight. They flew close to Sicily, so they could see Mount Etna through the window.”
