Malta comes back

Once a favourite British Airways (and before that BEA) destination Malta will be back on the BA flight schedule from the start of the summer season 30 March.  A daily return flight is to be introduced from Gatwick.  The new route will appeal to corporate visitors looking for a Business Class option, whilst the frequency will also be ideal for convention business.

Alex Incorvaja, Director UK & Ireland of the Malta Tourism Authority, stated:  "We are delighted to have BA flying back to our shores.  The introduction of this flagship carrier to Malta further reinforces our commitment and strategy of making the Islands even more accessible to the British traveller, be it for leisure or business".

In another move British Airways is to roll out its hand-baggage-only and new semi-flex fare options across its entire short haul network of more than 90 destinations.

The semi-flex fare will give customers all the benefits of a standard fare, such as a generous baggage allowance and food and drinks, plus the advantage on frequent routes of getting on an earlier flight if early and a seat is available.  There is an ability to select a seat for free two days prior to travel. www.ba.com
