AIR Malta and Lufthansa German Airlines intend to start a bilateral cooperation. An MoU was signed by Ernst Funk, CEO of Air Malta, and Joachim Steinbach, vice president of Lufthansa German Airlines.
“Air Malta already has a very close cooperation with Lufthansa Technik since several years,” says Funk. “Based on this excellent experience we have decided to enhance this cooperation to the passenger airline.”
Both airlines are planning to adjust their timetables and give their passengers the opportunity to increase connections to worldwide destinations.
“Lufthansa offers 187 destinations in 79 countries during the coming summer timetable, together with our Star Alliance partners we fly to 800 destinations in 130 countries,” says Steinbach. “Lufthansa passengers can now also make use of Air Malta flights to Munich and Frankfurt. Our aim is to integrate Air Malta into the new Lufthansa Terminal T2 in Munich, so that Air Malta passengers can then easily connect to Lufthansa flights.”The two airlines are also planning to introduce the first codeshare flights with the start of the winter timetable 2006/07 in November, says Funk. A joint code allows the airlines to use their own flight numbers also on flights operated by the partner airline.
