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.

This week we revisited The Phoenicia, a hotel located in a superb spot, just outside the vibrant capital of Valletta on the edge of the city’s 16th century bastions and surrounded by gorgeous landscaped gardens. Both a landmark and a luxury retreat, this hotel is proud to be celebrated as Malta’s most iconic hotel. After an extensive refurbishment over the last few years, the latest addition to the hotel is now ready!
Introducing the Deep Nature Spa, an environment of sophistication and light.
We love the use of materials like walnut timber, marble and Maltese stone that give this spa a modern yet natural environment making it a genuine Maltese retreat. The historical wall that runs through the spa forms the spine of the area through which the old and new sit beautifully together.
This spa boasts an indoor pool, a fitness area with state-of-the-art equipment, a relaxation area featuring a salt room, sauna, steam room and multi-jet showers along with 5 treatment rooms were you can treat yourself to a tailor-made massage or expert facial treatment.
This latest addition is a top luxury service that should not be missed when visiting this fantastic hotel.
