KM Malta Airlines and ITA Airways have inked a “broad” codeshare agreement to connect flights across their respective networks.

The deal will allow travellers to book a single, consolidated ticket across multiple flights involving both airlines, with baggage checked through to the final destination.

Under the partnership, ITA Airways will affix its ‘AZ’ code to all KM Malta Airlines services operating between Italy and Malta, while the nascent Maltese flag carrier, which began operations in March, will code-share on ITA Airways flights between Malta and both Rome Fiumicino and Milan Linate airports, as well as on Italian domestic services and selected international connections.

KM Malta Airlines executive chairman David Curmi, said: “This codeshare agreement significantly broadens our reach to various airports in Italy and beyond… We look forward to further collaboration with ITA Airways to deliver more advantages to our customers.”

Andrea Benassi, ITA Airways general manager, added: “This partnership is a significant step in ITA Airways’ growth strategy, enhancing connectivity for our passengers.”

The European Commission this week approved the proposed acquisition of ITA Airways by aviation giant Lufthansa Group, which in January established a codeshare agreement with KM Malta Airlines.
