The Maltese national airline, Air Malta, added a third destination to Sicily and will now be operating to the airport of Comiso in Ragusa. The service will be offered every Friday and Sunday commencing from the 17th of December.

The Go Light Air Malta fares will apply on this route meaning that passengers can travel to Ragusa at € 39 per direction, taxes and fees included.

Apart from 14 flights per week to Catania, last summer, Air Malta started operating again to Palermo.

A trip to Ragusa also gives the opportunity to visit other picturesque towns nearby, such as Modica and Scicli, both Unesco World Heritage. In addition to the spectacular views, these towns are renowned for traditional foods and wines.

The Maltese Minister of Tourism Konrad Mizzi described this initiative as a confirmation of the growth strategy for Air Malta. “This development will actively strengthen Air Malta’s operations in Sicily by accommodating visiting tourists and business travellers that can connect to other destinations.”

Paul Seis, Chief Commercial Officer for Air Malta, added, “This is excellent news for both Malta and Sicily. This is the first time that Air Malta will be operating to this airport strengthening the airline’s position in the Sicilian market with at least 18 flights per week commencing in winter. The addition will surely improve the connectivity between the two islands, as now the southern province of Ragusa will be covered. Furthermore this is evidence of the commitment towards Malta and Sicily and will strengthen Air Malta’s position by entering into new markets in line with the current strategy of aiming to become the airline of the Mediterranean Islands”.
