Emirates has announced that it will resume flights to Malta as the airline expands its European network to a further 34 destinations.
The United Arab Emirates airline will be resuming its three weekly services to Malta via Larnaca starting from 14th July.
Flights will depart Dubai every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
The airline had stopped all flights to Malta almost a year ago in light of the COVID-19 pandemic which resulted in a number of flight restrictions and suspensions.
All local Emirates staff were made redundant at the time.
Passengers travelling to Malta will either have to present a vaccination certificate or a negative PCR before boarding.

Finally some good news regarding airline connections, as we receive the news that Malta is to regain an air link to Dubai from May, when FlyDubai will begin operating four flights a week between the two. This will be the first time that the airline has operated flights to Malta.
FlyDubai will start flying to Malta International Airport from May 12, with two of the weekly flights linking Malta International Airport to Dubai International Airport directly and two others including a stop at Catania International Airport.
Malta lost nearly half its air routes last year as part of a series of COVID-19 related cutback measures and in doing so, lost all flights to Dubai following Emirates’ decision to pull out of Malta altogether.
Return fares will start from €500 for economy class seats or €2,000 for business class seats. A full schedule of the Dubai-Malta flights is available on the Flydubai website.
Flydubai CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith said the airline’s decision to grow its network of destinations reflected its expectation that passengers would gradually return to the skies as COVID-19 restrictions on air travel eased.
