As from today, as had been previously announced, Air Malta will be connecting the Italian city of Reggio Calabria with Paris and from 29 March, the Maltese airline will also be connecting Reggio with Genoa.

This was announced at a press conference last Thursday by Reggio mayor Giuseppe Scopelliti.

The announcement, however, resulted in Air Malta becoming involved in a local polemic, since that very same day the governor of Calabria, Agazio Loiero, returned triumphant from Rome announcing that Reggio’s airport, the Tito Minniti (or Aereoporto dello Stretto), will have routes to Pisa, Turin, Milano Malpensa, Bologna and Venice.

Mayor Scopelliti thus held another press conference on Friday in which he criticised the province and the State for not helping Reggio Calabria. For eight whole years, he said, Reggio airport had not received any government help, while other airports in Italy, from Venice to Catania, have been modernised. Around e40 million had been earmarked for the modernisation of Reggio airport, and had arrived in the city, but no one knew what happened to it, the mayor said.

In contrast, Air Malta came in for fulsome praise. Antonio Barrile, Reggio council’s consultant, praised the Maltese airline, saying: “Air Malta will be investing e60,000 to connect Reggio to Genoa. No one, not even Alitalia-CAI, has ever invested so much in Reggio.”

… €40m … arrived in the city, but no one knew what happened to it …It’s really annoying when that happens, did they look down the back of the sofa, because that’s where I lose stuff?

… Air Malta will be investing €60,000 …. No one has ever invested so much …Yes they have, remember the €40m … Well, maybe because they have a history of misplacing … for most investors, that’s never a good record.

Dear Travellers
just to let people know I discovered flights from Belfast to Liverpool and then to Milan and after to lamezia all possible in one go leaving Belfast at 10 am arriving Lamezia at 7.30 pm and I just booked the 1st 2 flights last night for January for £ 1 each a total of £2 to get to Milan from Belfast , 15 euros for Lamezia
The return flights were the same price -Ryan air of course but the return journey requires overnight or return from Milan via Glasgow but at these prices a hotel for one night will be affordable.
Happy days
Pamela :D
