Getting from Catania to Malta

Hi,

I will be leaving Syracuse for Malta on Thursday 19th September.

It seems that Air Malta has only 2 flights daily from Catania to Malta, one at about 8 am and the other one at about 10.30 pm ?

Is this correct ?

Are there any other alternatives to get to Malta from Syracuse on this date ?

Regards

Flight schedules may update and change by next September – It’s too early to know, but that's typically the flight schedule. You might also check connecting flights.

VirtuFerries runs service between Pozzallo and Malta.

Even the Meridiana and Lufthansa flights are operated by Air Malta.

it is easy to come tp Malta from Catania, you can either take AST coaches to Pozzallo very frequent time table or then there is the Virtu Ferries which departs from Catania Port to Pazzallo port for embarkation which costs 10 euro twice weekly and from Pozallo Daily and in August mostly two trips daily . the trip cruise will take 1 hour 30 minutes. The Hotel in Malta a very cheap compared to other countries, The best bay is Mellieha Bay. where you can easyly book a hotel ALL INCLUSIVE SEA Bank Hotel which includes even drinks at the night are included. you want regret it.

It is easy to arrive in Malta from Catania - VirtuFerries has run shuttle service from Catania to Pozzallo as well, but has discontinued ferry service between Catania and Malta.

You might check the AST bus service schedules from Siracusa to Pozzallo nearer your travel dates, but you could always take Interbus from Siracusa to Catania and then travel onward from Catania to Pozzallo – AST has been reducing service, so it’s impossible to predict schedules for next September.

Even with reduced service, AST continues to run service between Siracusa and Pozzallo - Schedules are available locally on arrival.
