Commenting on this new service Philip Saunders, Air Malta’s Chief Commercial Officer said: 
This is good news for Malta and Algeria. Our flights will offer much needed connectivity and are expected to facilitate and enhance business opportunities between the two countries.
With a population exceeding 37 million and an economy based on oil resources, Algeria is a country rich in history. It is the largest country in Africa and is trying hard to regain its reputation as a tourist destination.
