Phoenicia Hotel and Air Malta team up to attract autumn visitors

Enjoy the art and culture of this historic island

Malta is an ideal autumn escape, with temperatures still reaching 25 degrees Celsius in October, and a host of events taking place across this charming Mediterranean island. With this in mind, the iconic Phoenicia Hotel has teamed up with Air Malta to attract visitors, with 15% off Air Malta flights exclusively for guests of the hotel*, valid for travel until 14th November 2015.

Set by the gates of the capital, Valletta, the five-star Phoenicia is within easy reach of some of the island’s most breathtaking architecture and fascinating new exhibitions.

From 4th September to 6th December, Heritage Malta is hosting an exhibition at the Grand Master’s Palace in Valletta to commemorate the 450th anniversary of the Great Siege of 1565. Keen historians can discover some of the objects that survived the turbulent period and learn about the colossal confrontation between the Order of St John and the Ottoman Empire in Malta, with an impressive display of documents, portraits, armour and weapons.

At the Palazzo Falson, in nearby Mdina, there will also be a new exhibition of historic and artistic watches, curated by the British Museum’s David Thompson, opening in October and running until January 2016.

Phoenicia Hotel offers five nights in October from just £462 per person sharing a classic plus room, including daily breakfast and tickets to the Valletta Living History audiovisual show. Book at or call 0800 862 0025 to receive your Air Malta discount code.

Air Malta offers flights from across the UK from just £138.35*, inclusive of discount and based on travel from London Gatwick in October, with 30kg of luggage included. To book visit
