Air Malta - Malta Aviation Guide (9)

Malta’s national carrier has announced that two of its flights for Thursday (today) to and from Catania Airport were cancelled due to aircraft movement limitations imposed on airlines by the airport following the fire which broke out on 16th July.

The following are the affected flights:

  • KM644 Malta to Catania (13:35)
  • KM654 Catania to Malta (15:00)

Due to damage caused by the fire, the airport’s management had suspended all of the airport’s operations until 14:00 on 19th July.

However, on Wednesday (yesterday) the airport reported that repairs were still underway, and as a result full re-opening has been delayed.

It was announced that in Terminal A, the site in which the fire originally broke out, will be closed for an additional five days.

Passengers were informed that if they booked their flights directly through Air Malta and wanted a monetary refund they were able to submit a request, and if they booked through an agent, they were informed to contact their agency.

Those who wished to rebook their tickets were informed to contact the airline’s call centre.
