Air Malta issues rescue fare for Cobalt Air stranded passengers
The Cypriot carrier has cancelled all its flights and indefinitely suspended operations, advising customers not to go to the airport. Consequently, Air Malta has issued a rescue fare for stranded Cobalt Air passengers: €50 fare per sector on the airline’s flights to Zurich, London, Paris, Dusseldorf, Moscow and Tel Aviv to/from Malta. Price excludes taxes and charges. Tickets are offered on standby/availability basis.
These fares are being offered following a request from the Cypriot Civil Aviation Authority who has asked IATA airlines to activate a voluntary commitment (rescue fares) in order to help repatriate Cobalt passengers stranded in Europe, Russia and in the Middle East.
Bookings can be made through Air Malta’s call centre on +356 2166 2211 until the end of this month with travel open until the end of November.
