Malta, a small archipelago located about 50 miles south of Sicily on the Mediterranean, is ready to welcome tourists again starting next June. This readiness was conveyed by the Minister of Tourism and Consumer Protection Clayton Bartolo recently.
Since the resumption of tourist travel, 18 airlines, including Air Malta, will land in Malta this summer. That figure accounts for 70% of the routes the island will have in 2019.
At the same time, the cruise ship will also dock for Malta. So far, 34 cruise ships have declared that they are ready to come to take vacationers to the island.
The Maltese government is also in discussions with the European Commission in the hope of allowing “green” passports for those who have been vaccinated to allow holidays to Malta without any restrictions.
Malta itself has succeeded in reducing the number of COVID-19 transmission, which has been praised by the World Health Organization, the European Union and the Commonwealth. The daily average number of infections is at its lowest point throughout 2021 with less than 100 cases.
