Ryanair's first Cardiff to Malta flight takes off

Ryanair, Europe’s No. 1 airline, today (03 April) celebrated the first flight on its new twice weekly Cardiff service to Malta. Ryanair’s Cardiff summer schedule includes 5 routes in total, with three new routes to Malta, Barcelona and Malaga. 

To mark the start of this new Cardiff route and the official launch of the summer season, Ryanair has released seats from Cardiff at prices starting from just £14.99, for travel in March, April and May, which are only available for booking on the Ryanair.com website until midnight Friday (6th April). 

Ryanair’s Alejandra Ruiz said: 

“We’re pleased to officially launch our new twice weekly service from Cardiff to Malta. To celebrate the start of this new route, we are releasing seats on sale from £14.99, for travel in March, April and May, which are only available for booking on the Ryanair.com website until midnight Friday (6th April). Since these amazing low prices will be snapped up quickly, customers should log onto www.ryanair.com now and avoid missing out.” 

Cardiff Airport’s CEO, Deb Barber, added: 

“After the launch of flights to Barcelona yesterday (2nd April) Ryanair’s exciting start to the summer season at Cardiff Airport continues today with the launch of flights to Malta.  

“The island is a stunning holiday destination in the Mediterranean and a hidden gem, with a pleasant climate, a busy calendar of events and a rich history to explore. What’s more, there is a thriving Maltese community in South Wales, so these flights will serve as an ideal connection between both countries. We look forward to the start of flights to Malaga when they begin in June.”
