Ryanair are officially ok now. An overstatement perhaps, but they have definitely improved.
With that in mind, we feel duty bound to alert you to some cracking return fares currently available from Malta, courtesy of the “Ryanair €19.99 summer sale”.
The terms of the sale are pretty simple:
- Book before midnight on Sunday 15 June 204.
- Travel Period: 1 July 2014 – 31 October 2014.
The following fares are currently available during the sale period (we have checked): (more…)
MaltaPoints attitude towards Ryanair is thawing, and it is certainly true that the new website is much, much better. This is also helped by its current promotion of aggressively cheap Malta flights.
One key advantage of its online revamp is the hugely improved search function, where you can hunt down and pinpoint its lowest fares. Always on the lookout for a bargain, we recently looked at flight prices this summer between London and Malta, and the results were impressive:
- Flights from London Luton to Malta are currently available at £39.99 in June and July
- Flights from Malta to London Luton are currently available at £31.59 in July (£54.05 in June).
So that’s a grand total of £71.58 for a return flight to Malta, in July. This price is available, for example, on a flight going out Sunday 6 July, returning Thursday 17 July.
No outstanding special offers yet, but the last couple of days have seen the announcement of a number of new air routes to Malta, which also brings Malta a new frequent flyer scheme, BalticMiles.
Heading east with BalticMiles
Latvian airline AirBaltic is to launch a new route from Riga to Malta on 11 May 2013. While Riga may not necessarily be your destination of choice, it offers numerous connections to Eastern Europe and Russia. It also has a standalone frequent flyer scheme, BalticMiles, registration for which is here. I’ll of course feature any good deals via Air Baltic/BalticMiles as they arise. Indeed, it may feature quite regularly on Maltapoints, if it’s any good.
BalticMiles are also tied into the Hilton Hhonors scheme (you earn Hhonors points with BalticMiles and vice versa – in fact you earn both at present, as it currently offers “double dipping”). Hhonors is an old favourite of Maltapoints (we really like the Hilton Portomaso), so also stay tuned to our updates on Hhonors. In the spirit of this website, there’s also a gentle special offer to kick you off with – you earn 3 x BalticPoints on Hilton stays booked before 31 December 2012. Combine that with the pretty-much unbeatable Christmas/New Year discount at the Hilton Portomaso featured here, and you can have a nice stash of BalticMiles in time for the May launch.
Good old Ryanair…
Ryanair is not this website’s favourite airline by any stretch of the imagination. However, it has launched a few new routes to Malta. From March 2013, Ryanair will fly to Malta daily from Milan Bergamo, thrice weekly from Liverpool and twice weekly from Gothenburg in Sweden.
Rest assured, we’ll be keeping an eye out for all special offers…
