The month of July saw the re-opening of Malta’s International Airport. As of the 1st of July, Malta started welcoming tourists from a number of countries while from the 15th of July, the travel ban will be lifted from all countries. This was definitely a breath of fresh air for the tourism industry, including AX Hotels.

Once the restrictions started to lift in Malta, AX Hotels took the decision to open almost all outlets. With the airport re-opening, all of the Group’s hotels have re-opened to welcome in both tourists and locals. During the first week of opening, AX Hotels received over 600 guests in the first week of July and occupancy levels are forecasted to be in the region of over 25% for the month of July. The major markets for these guests included the strong markets of UK, France, Germany and Italy.

Minister for Tourism Julia Farrugia Portelli inaugurated this moment by visiting AX The Palace on Wednesday 8th July to meet the hotel’s in-house guests and share a celebratory drink with them. Kammile Nielsen and her family are among AX The Palace’s guests. This is the Nielsen family’s fifth time visiting the Maltese Islands and they have chosen AX Hotels 4 times out of these these holidays.

Claire Zammit Xuereb, Hospitality Director at AX Hotels claims that ‘the group is extremely honoured and humbled by our customers’ response towards our re-opening. It is indeed clear that, throughout the years and through our endless hard work, we have gained the public’s trust. The Nielsen family are a clear example of this trust and the impeccable guest experience that our hotels offer. AX Hotels strived to continuously work diligently and in a sustainable manner for a better future for the tourism industry’.

Kevin Callus, General Manager at AX Hotels Sliema ensures that ‘we are taking all the precautionary measures to safeguard all our guests. Attention to detail is being practised, now more than ever, to ensure a safe and secure stay for all’.

AX Hotels is the proud owner of seven hotels in Sliema, Qawra and Valletta and 17 restaurants including the recently awarded MICHELIN star restaurant, Under Grain.
