Flights to the favourite Mediterranean destination will be in place until October 30 this year.

The new flights mean holidaygoers will be able to travel directly to Malta from Scotland for the first time.

Both customers and independent travel agents will be able to book package holidays to the top destination.

And not only that, but they can also easily visit the neighbouring island of Gozo.

Flights will leave Edinburgh Airport on a weekly basis every Wednesday.

It comes as Jet2.com and Jet2holidays launched a new programme for Summer 24 from Edinburgh Airport, with 33 sun and city destinations on sale across the Mediterranean, Canary Islands and Europe.

We always want to add destinations and routes where we can, to make sure people can get away and relax!

And it offers customers plenty of choice and flexibility when it comes to booking a much-needed getaway to their favourite summer destinations.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “We are delighted to see our first flight to Malta take off from Edinburgh Airport today.

“Feedback from customers and independent travel agents in Scotland has been telling us that flights and holidays to Malta and Gozo are very much in demand for Summer 24, and we know that this is a destination that customers want to experience.

“Since putting services on sale to Malta from Edinburgh Airport, local customers and independent travel agents have been booking getaways to the stunning hotspot in their numbers.

“As the UK’s largest tour operator, we are giving customers and independent travel agents in the region unrivalled choice when it comes to enjoying a holiday this summer.”

Kate Sherry, Chief Commercial Officer (Aero) at Edinburgh Airport, said: “We always want to add destinations and routes where we can, to make sure people can get away and relax, and we’re sure our passengers will ha-Valetta fun on the island!

“It’s great to see Malta added to Jet2.com and Jet2holidays’ already extensive programme from Scotland’s busiest airport and we are looking forward to another busy summer.”

Malta Tourism Authority’s CEO, Mr Carlo Micallef, welcomed the introduction of Jet2.com flights from Edinburgh, adding that he feels confident that Jet2.com’s expansion in Scotland for Malta augurs well given the Island’s traditional popularity in the Scottish market.

Alan Borg, Malta International Airport Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are pleased to seeJet2.com and Jet2holidays expand its schedule for Malta, introducing an additional link between our airport and Scotland’s vibrant capital.

“This direct route to Edinburgh joins 9 other Jet2 routes to airports across the United Kingdom, which will continue to enhance Malta’s offering to our airport’s biggest tourism market throughout the summer months.”
