Air France and Air Malta have signed a code-share agreement whereby Air France will place its code and flight numbers on flights operated by Air Malta between Malta and Paris-CDG and Orly, and also between Malta and Lyon.
Starting on 30 March 2014, this agreement will enable Air France to offer its customers 18 weekly services between the two French cities and Malta. The flights to/from Paris-CDG and Paris-Orly Airports will connect with Air France’s extensive global and French domestic networks.
The flights will be operated by the Maltese airline with Airbus A319/A320 aircraft and will go on sale today 10 February 2014.
With this code-share agreement, the two airlines’ customers will benefit from new services, such as through check-in for passengers with connections. Air France passengers will be able to earn Miles with the Flying Blue loyalty programme.
Commenting on this agreement Philip Saunders, Air Malta’s Chief Commercial Officer said: “We are excited with this agreement and what it brings to our customers. By combining our flight offerings between the two countries, our customers will benefit from access to many European and inter-continental destinations operated by Air France from its Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Orly hubs. Both Air Malta and Air France share the same reputation and commitment towards their customers, such as superior service and enhanced levels of customer satisfaction. This is yet another milestone for Air Malta on our 40th anniversary of operations/”
“This agreement significantly strengthens our flight offering to Malta, currently served only from Toulouse. Air France is expanding its network in a region with high tourism potential and offers its customers new travel opportunities. This new agreement will also help to increase the traffic of both airlines,” SVP Europe & North Africa Air France-KLM, Henri de Peyrelongue, said.
