Yesterday we wrote about the new Ryanair option from the UK/Rome/Charleroi to Comiso in Sicily, on Malta’s doorstep (and a few minutes drive from the Virtu ferries terminal).
To add to this, and following some research by the Maltapoints team, it does appear that there are also direct flights available from Malta to Comiso.
A new airline has recently been set up, administered in Malta by the “Travel-Malta” Group of companies, called “Aerosud Fly Airways” and they are chartering Medavia’s (50 seat) Bombardier Dash8-Q300 to fly from Comiso to Malta (and, possibly, Lampedusa).
Flights actually started in July 2013, but were suspended after a few flights, seemingly due to low passenger numbers (and possibly high fees at Comiso airport). However, Aerosud have said that they will restart operations in September.
The proposed schedule for September is as follows:
Malta – Comiso
Comiso – Malta
Price is EUR75 all-in one way (€150 return). Children (2 to 12 Years) pay 50%, while infants (under 2 Years) who do not use a seat are free.
If you want to book a place on one of these flights, Travel-Malta’s contact details are as follows:

There also appear to be plans for onward travel to Lampedusa, although details on this are currently scarce.
