KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Air Malta inaugurated their codeshare agreement on Wednesday. The codeshare, which started this summer, saw KLM placing its code and flight numbers on flights operated by Air Malta between Malta and Amsterdam.
“Both Air Malta and KLM share the same service commitment towards their customers and this agreement was a natural step for us after launching the codeshare with Air France last year”, Joseph Galea, Air Malta’s Deputy Chief Commercial Officer said.
This agreement has enabled KLM to offer its customers daily services between Amsterdam and Malta.
“Through this codeshare our customers are now in a position to benefit from access to many European and intercontinental destinations particularly North America, operated by KLM through Amsterdam”, Mr Galea added
Air Malta’s flights to/from Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport connect with KLM’s extensive global network. Customers of both airlines are benefitting from new services, such as through check-in for passengers with connections.
On his part, Bruce Dönszelmann, KLM’s Vice President Alliances, said that the Dutch airline is delighted to have started this codeshare with Air Malta.
“This new codeshare agreement makes it easier to our KLM customers to visit the stunning Maltese Islands. Also Maltese customers can now benefit from easy access to KLM’s network offering 139 destinations all over the world.”
