KLM and Air Malta in­au­gu­rate code-share agree­ment

The Malta Business Weekly - - NEWS -

KLM and Air Malta last week their code-share agree­ment. The code­share, which started this sum­mer, saw KLM plac­ing its code and flight num­bers on flights op­er­ated by Air Malta be­tween Malta and Am­s­ter­dam.

This agree­ment has en­abled KLM to of­fer its cus­tomers daily ser­vices be­tween Am­s­ter­dam and Malta. 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.

Com­ment­ing on this agree­ment Joseph Galea, Air Malta’s Deputy chief Com­mer­cial of­fi­cer said: “We are very ex­cited with this new code-share agree­ment. Since July, when we started op­er­at­ing this code-share, we have had a very good re­sponse from our mu­tual cus­tomers. 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 code-share with Air France last year.

“This code-share comes at a par­tic­u­lar sig­nif­i­cant time for Air Malta when we are cel­e­brat­ing our 40 years of op­er­a­tions to Am­s­ter­dam Schiphol. Through this code­share our cus­tomers are now in a po­si­tion to ben­e­fit from ac­cess to many Euro­pean and in­ter-con­ti­nen­tal des­ti­na­tions par­tic­u­larly North Amer­ica, op­er­ated by KLM through Am­s­ter­dam.”

Bruce Dön­szel­mann, KLM’s vice pres­i­dent Al­liances said: “KLM is de­lighted to have started this code­share with Air Malta. This new code-share 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.” Flight sched­ules (in lo­cal time) Mon­days, Thurs­days, Satur­days, Sun­days
