Is malta overrun with african and arab migrants all desperate to get here.

Like HS said, if there was a real demand for it then of course the airlines would jump in and put it on.

The small numbers of real people who might need this service from cork couldnt justify the larger plane to get to malta.

If malta was the "isle of man" then it would stand a better chance.

not really. they usually land up on a small island between tunisia and malta to be rescued by italian navy.

true, but can't really gauge demand unless you have an active flight running. if they can't sustain a route to Brussels, then take a weekly flight away from them and run it to malta. There's already a ryanair hub here.

I hear what you are saying.

Would there be any case of combining a flight to malta as a stop-over on a flight to a destination in North Africa?
