As part of the Maltese government’s efforts to improve connectivity of Malta with rest of the world and to promote tourism in the country, the low-cost airline Ryanair announced that it will launch its first ever out-of-Europe flight from Malta. As per the reports, the airline company will begin operating a flight from Malta to Amman in Jordan from April next year.
The announcement was made during a meeting between Tourism Minister Konrad Mizzi, Ryanair Chief Commercial Officer David O’Brien, and representatives of the Malta Tourism Authority.
“Ryanair’s new announcement demonstrates its commitment towards the Maltese islands, shortly after it invested €100M to base its sixth aircraft in Malta. This new route from Malta to Amman is estimated to bring around 11,200 inbound visitors to our islands during the Summer months,” Konrad Mizzi was quoted as saying by LovinMalta.
David O’Brien also spoke to the media and stated: “Ryanair is pleased to announce a brand new route from Malta to Amman, Jordan starting in April 2019, which will operate twice-weekly as part of our biggest ever Malta Summer 2019 schedule, which now includes 62 routes in total.”
O’Brien also announced that as a part of celebration, Ryanair was also releasing a sale on some routes from just €14.99 and that the tickets will be available for booking only until midnight of 8th November.
