Closure of Catania airport to affect Air Malta flights
The closure of Catania's Fontanarossa airport from November 5 to December 5 due to infrastructural works being carried on the city's airport runway will affect Air Malta's flights to that airport.
Due to this closure and the limited capacity at Sigonella airport, which can handle a maximun of four arrivals/departures per hour, Air Malta was forced to transfer its operations to Sigonella airport and cancel some services on certain dates.
Air Malta issued the following revised flight schedule for this period.
Check-in for Air Malta's flights to Malta will still be done at Catania's Airport and will open three hours prior the schedule time of departure. Check-in will close 90 minutes prior to the scheduled time of departure. Checked in passengers will then be taken by coach to Sigonella's airport.
Passengers arriving at Sigonella's airport from Malta will be transferred by coach to Catania’s airport and will pick their luggage up at this airport. Air Malta is contacting passengers booked on these flights to advise them
of the changes and offer them alternatives. Passengers with confirmed reservations and in possession of an issued ticket for flights affected by the cancellation can choose between one of the following options: free
date change in the same booking class of service for another date until March 15, 2013 or full refund on tickets affected by the above flight disruptions.
