Ryanair to introduce Cardiff - Malta route in 2019

Europe's largest budget carrier, Ryanair, announced a new route from Cardiff to Malta on Tuesday, promising a twice-weekly service linking the two from April next year.

Ryanair’s Robin Kiely said,  “Ryanair is pleased to announce a new Cardiff route to Malta, commencing in April 2019, which will operate twice weekly as part of our Summer 2019 schedule."

Deb Barber, CEO of Cardiff Airport, added, “Our customers have been asking for the return of flights to Malta for some time, so we’re absolutely thrilled with today’s announcement that Ryanair will operate regular, low-cost services to this popular Mediterranean destination from early 2019. South Wales is home to a thriving Maltese community and so this service makes it easier to travel between both destinations, whilst also serving as another access point for European visitors seeking to explore Wales.”
