Air Malta flights delayed again, this time because of bird strike
Several Air Malta flights were delayed yesterday morning after one of the airline’s aircraft suffered a bird strike.
The aircraft returned to Malta safely and engineers went to work on it to make sure it is safe for flying.
This has however affected several flights going out of Malta and, consequently, return flights later on.
The flights are from Malta to Rome, Zurich, Marseille, Brussels and Palermo.
The airline said it is working hard to minimise delays as much as possible. Customers scheduled to travel should visit Air Malta’s website for the latest updates.
Air Malta has also issued a new timetable for flights which were affected yesterday.
On Wednesday, two Air Malta flights were delayed because pilots and crew were caught up in a massive traffic jam close to Luqa airport.
