Cheap flights from Malta

The tiny country of Malta has been the focus of many a traveller over the centuries; today it is a neat hub where you can find new places to explore. Skyscanner can assist you with your search for adventure, simply pop in where you’d like to go and your dates, and before you know it, you’ll be packing those bags!

There is only one major airport serving the islands of Malta, and that is the Malta International Airport (MLA) but this offers passengers transiting through its terminal buildings over 60 direct flights to international destinations.

You can fly with Air Malta, the flag carrying airline for the archipelago, or you can hop aboard flights with Ryanair, Air Serbia, Vueling, Aegean Airlines, Lufthansa, Turkish Airlines, easyJet, Emirates, Norwegian Air, Jet2, Wizz Air, and Swiss Air.

Popular flights from Malta

You can fly to many of the cities of nearby Italy in an hour or two, and there is plenty to see. Hop aboard a flight to Venice (VCE) an otherworldly city that was built on stilts in a lagoon. See the opulent Doge’s Palace, be awed by the Byzantine beauty of Saint Mark’s Basilica, and criss-cross the city’s canals, pathways and bridges, and get lost in this magical place.

Slightly longer on the plane can have you stepping down onto the streets of Stockholm (ARN), the sophisticated Scandinavian city, affectionately known as the ‘Venice of the North. See the Vasa Museum, and gaze upon its famous 17th century ship, see the enormous Royal Palace, or spend an afternoon on a boat touring the canals of this city.

Malta’s airport does not offer long-haul destinations, but you can connect to several airports that do, like Rome (FCO). Beyond being home to attractions like the Vatican, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, and the Roman Forum, travellers can also connect to destinations in the Americas, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.

Where to find cheap flights from Malta

As Malta only has one major international airport, looking for flights with low-cost carriers will give you the best chance of purchasing a cheap ticket. These are no-frills airlines that usually forgo dinner and drinks services to slash fare prices.

However, being savvy about when you travel can also help you save. Look at mid-week routes, or flights that leave at typically inconvenient times, like after midnight.

Off-peak seasons are also cheaper, so check out our calendar tool and review the rates month-to-month instead of day-to-day and cherry-pick the flights with the lowest fare.
