Air Malta, based at Luqa airport (MLA), has been hugely hit by the Covid pandemic, because of the high number of infections registered in the Country that pushed the European Union to issue mandatory swab tests for all those arriving from Malta. In 2019, just a few months before the pandemic outbreak, the airline announced a five-year development plan based on the arrival of 11 A320neo, to substitute partly the ceo aircraft and grow the fleet to 14 airplanes. One of these orders could be “upgraded” to a A321XLR, the ultra long-range version of the neo family, with plans to serve the Indian sub-continent and the US East Coast. Four A320neo have arrived, already, noticeably lowering the average age of the fleet (Photo Wikimedia Commons / Jeroen Stroen Aviation Photography)
