It wasn’t so long ago that few airlines operated flights to Malta, but with the rest of Europe seeing the budget airlines flying passengers elsewhere it was only a matter of time before they started offering cheap Malta flights.
Today, both Ryanair and easyJet offer cheap flights to Malta, along with tour operators such as Thomas Cook and Thomson Holidays who have their own fleets of aircraft.

Will 2011 be another year that sees cheap flights to Malta continue?
Cheap Malta flight deals have been around for a couple of years now, really since Ryanair opened her London and Dublin routes to Malta’s Luqa Airport, and Air Malta had to respond with cheap Malta flights of her own.
While oil prices, and subsequently aviation fuel, soared in price in the middle of 2008, it had halved again to sometimes less than US $70 a barrel in November last year, with economists suggesting that oil prices would stay low in 2013.
So will cheap Malta flights still be around for 2011?
Our guess is that there will still be good deals for flights to Malta this year, how cheap they will be no-one’s really sure. Ryanair for example could offer 10 Euro Malta flights again, and other airlines such as Air Malta might respond. Ryanair have also started cheap Malta flights from Bournemouth Airport, adding to their already impressive range of flights to Malta.
Time will tell, but hopefully there will be a few cheap Malta flights around.
Other airlines might respond by cutting their prices, while others might well start services from other regional UK airports.
Taxes are one thing that wonâ€™t go down, but there is a good amount of competition between the airlines. When checking prices between them remember to see if they charge extra for luggage and other extras which can sometimes make what looks a good deal no better than what other airlines are offering.
Overall though, the island is well served with flights to Malta.
Thank you for many interesting and useful information.
