Malta’s fresh addition to the U.K.’s green list has led low-cost airline EasyJet to add a new route to the island nation from Liverpool.

The move comes as the carrier tries to meet anticipated demand for travellers eager to visit one of the destinations deemed the lowest risk for holidays.

Beginning 25 July, EasyJet will operate twice-weekly flights on Tuesdays and Sundays for the duration of the summer from Liverpool (LPL) to Malta (MLA).

The airline says prices for the flights start from just £27 each way. A quick search for available flights on the EasyJet website didn’t turn up any options that cheap, but we did see available options as low as £46 one-way.

The budget carrier also announced it’s putting an additional 116,000 seats on sale for flights from the U.K. to the new green list destinations to cope with customer demand for international travel this summer. EasyJet has been aggressive in recent months to bolster its flight options, including new domestic routes, as travel rebounds after more than a year of the pandemic crippling the travel industry.

Starting from Wednesday, Malta, Madeira, the Balearic Islands (including Ibiza, Mallorca, Menorca and Formentera) as well as Caribbean islands such as Barbados, the Cayman Islands, Antigua, Barbuda, Dominica and Grenada are now on the UK’s green list.

That’s an important designation because it means those countries have been deemed low risk for travellers. As such, it doesn’t require people to quarantine when they return home to the UK.
