Considerations And Ideas For Your Flight To Malta

Emirates has the only direct flight to Malta with a stop at Larnaca. This is only a technical stop of 1hr 10min with a complete duration of 8 hours.

The only airline that can guarantee you the shortest flight is Emirates. A flight that takes hours. It costs a bit more than the others, but what best is to get a direct flight with just a technical stop at Larnace, Cyprus for 1 hour 10 minutes. This is the shortest distance with an aerial distance of 4052 kilometers.

When we last checked the choice of airlines offering a flight to this destination were Swissair, Air France, Emirates, Lufthansa, Etihad Airways and Turkish Airlines. They all stop at different airports in Europe.

In terms of cheap flight, if you wish to find the best deal, might at the end take you more time to get to your destination. So you have to see your budget and time available to do what is best for you.

Getting to Dubai with Air Malta

There is no flight to Dubai but you can get a direct flight to Abu Dhabi which is 120 km away from Dubai. To our opinion, it is not worth taking this flight since it will come approximately the same cost to go with another airline and land in Dubai. On the other side if you have business or a holiday in between Abu Dhabi and Dubai, it will be more worth it taking Air Malta as your airline.
