ITA Airways, Italy's national airline, has announced the commencement of sales for its latest direct flight route linking Malta and Milan Linate, slated to take off on the 1st of June 1st, 2024.

Operating four times a week until September, this connection aims to improve travel options between the two destinations. Departures from Malta are scheduled for 1:55 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Sundays, touching down in Milan at 3:55 pm. Meanwhile, Saturday flights from Malta will depart at 5:45 pm, arriving in Milan at 7:45 pm.

From Milan, flights will depart at 11:10 am, reaching Malta at 1:05 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Sundays. On Saturdays, departure from Milan is set for 3:00 pm, with arrival in Malta at 4:55 pm.

This expansion underscores ITA Airways' commitment to providing travellers more flexibility and convenience during the bustling summer season.

The addition of this route complements ITA Airways' existing service from Rome Fiumicino to Malta, which currently operates twice weekly. Plans are underway to increase this frequency to three times per week by April and expand to daily flights by June.

Looking ahead to summer 2024, ITA Airways aims to serve 57 destinations across its network, comprising 16 domestic, 26 international, and 15 intercontinental routes.

The airline is also gearing up to introduce several new direct flights from its Rome Fiumicino hub to various global destinations, including Chicago (USA), Toronto (Canada), Riyadh (Saudi Arabia), Accra (Ghana), Kuwait City (Kuwait), Dakar (Senegal), and Jeddah (Saudi Arabia).
