KM Malta Airlines teams up with Air France

Read article


In an exciting development for the aviation industry, KM Malta Airlines, poised to become Malta's new national carrier, has announced a codeshare agreement with Air France. This strategic partnership emerges as a prelude to KM Malta Airlines' much-anticipated launch, marking a significant step forward in connecting the Mediterranean island nation more closely with the rest of the world.

Connecting continents - The codeshare collaboration

This codeshare deal is more than just a business agreement; it's a bridge between cultures and economies. By facilitating smoother passenger transfers across their extensive networks, KM Malta Airlines and Air France are set to offer travelers unprecedented convenience and flexibility. This move mirrors the strategy of Air Malta, KM Malta Airlines' predecessor, which, despite not being part of the world's three major airline alliances, managed to carve out a significant niche in the aviation market.

Expanding footprints - KM Malta Airlines in France

KM Malta Airlines is not just entering the market quietly; it's making a statement with an impressive schedule that includes 19 weekly flights connecting Malta International Airport (MLA) to the heart of France, Paris. The airline will operate flights to both of Paris's major airports, with 10 weekly flights to Paris-Charles de Gaulle (CDG) and nine to Paris-Orly (ORY), ensuring comprehensive coverage for travelers. Additionally, the airline will extend its reach to Lyon-Saint Exupéry (LYS), with five weekly flights, further emphasizing its commitment to serving the French market.

As KM Malta Airlines gears up for its grand debut, it's important to note that it stands on the threshold of a new era, taking over the mantle from Air Malta. Until March 31, 2024, Air Malta will continue to operate as the flag carrier, after which it will pass the baton to KM Malta Airlines through the transfer of all assets and operations before the company is officially dissolved.

The transition has been meticulously planned, with KM Malta Airlines already securing its Air Operator Certificate (AOC) in December 2023. The launch of its online booking platform at the same time signifies the airline's readiness to welcome passengers and showcases its modern approach to customer service.

Fleet and destinations - Ready to soar

KM Malta Airlines is not just any start-up airline; it's a carrier with vision and ambition. With a fleet of eight Airbus A320 aircraft, the airline is poised to serve 17 destinations across Europe. This strategic choice of aircraft ensures both efficiency and comfort for passengers, making it an attractive option for both leisure and business travel.

The codeshare agreement between KM Malta Airlines and Air France is a testament to the dynamic nature of the aviation industry and the endless possibilities it holds for connecting people and places. As KM Malta Airlines prepares to take to the skies, it does so with a strong foundation, a clear vision, and a commitment to excellence that promises to elevate Malta's presence on the global aviation map. This new chapter is not just about a new airline; it's about opening new doors, creating new opportunities, and bringing the world closer together, one flight at a time.
