► ALGERIA: Air Malta reduces, now suspends, Algiers flights until mid August, just 3 weeks after their launch.

Air Malta logoAccording to the GDS, Air Malta (KM) has suspended its Malta Valletta - Algiers flights, barely one month after their June 17 launch with a twice weekly A319 service.

Maltese press reports claim the route was dropped to a once weekly flight for the duration of July though that now appears to have been suspended outright. The system shows that regular twice weekly flights will, however, resume with effect from August 12.

On its launch, the route was lauded as having "facilitated and enhanced business opportunities between the two countries.”
