Cluj-Napoca now only a flight away from Malta International Airport
Malta International Airport’s second, new summer route for 2017 was launched yesterday evening. The first passengers from Cluj-Napoca in Romania were given a special welcome by hosts donning the traditional Maltese costume and treated to a cake-cutting ceremony.
One-and-a-half hour flights to the second most populous city in Romania will be operated by Wizz Air every Wednesday and Sunday.
This new route also marks Malta International Airport’s first connection to the region of Transylvania, which is surrounded by the spectacular Carpathian Mountains, and sought for its scenic landscapes and medieval towns.
Certainly worth a visit in Cluj-Napoca are the National Art Museum, housing a collection of weapons and art dating back to the Middle Ages, and the National Museum of Transylvanian History, showcasing both temporary and permanent exhibitions.
Prior to the introduction of this route, Malta was connected to Romania via Wizz Air flights to its capital, Bucharest.
