easyJet has announced a new route from Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

The budget airline will launch a new year-round route between Liverpool and Malta in December. Flights will operate twice a week - on Tuesdays and Sundays.

The new route to Malta will be the fourth the airline has added to its Liverpool network in the last 12 months, following new services being introduced to Enfidha in Tunisia, Hurghada in Egypt and the Greek island of Corfu.

About the destination, easyJet says: "Famed for its beautiful coastlines, crystal clear waters and more that 3,000 hours of sunshine a year, Malta is an archipelago of islands situated in the heart of the Mediterranean steeped in rich history and offers plenty to explore whether for a cultural getaway, relaxing beach break or scuba diving adventure."

Package holidays to Malta are also available to book through easyJet holidays, with a mix of all-inclusive resorts from the 4* db San Antonio Hotel and Spa, to adults-only luxury with the 4* Seaview Hotel located in St Pauls Bay.

Commenting on the new route, Ali Gayward, Malta country manager for easyJet, said: “We are delighted to be announcing another new route from Liverpool, to Malta, providing our customers in the North West with even greater choice and connectivity to more of Europe’s best holiday destinations, all with great value fares and friendly service, and we look forward to welcoming them on board.”

Paul Winfield, aviation director for Liverpool John Lennon Airport, added: “We are delighted to welcome this new service to Malta with easyJet – a destination that we know is popular with holidaymakers from across the Liverpool City Region and beyond.

"With just 9% of all flights to Malta from the North West currently served from Liverpool, this route has significant opportunity to grow from here, with more passengers from across the North West now able to take advantage of all the benefits of jetting off on holiday to Malta from Liverpool.”

easyJet now bases seven aircraft at Liverpool John Lennon Airport, flying around 2m passengers a year, offering up to 340 flights each week to 27 destinations.
