It is the most important airline in the Maltese region, whose headquarters are located at the Malta International Airport in Luqa. It was founded on March 21, 1973, beginning its journey with only two aircraft (Boeing 720) leased to Pakistan International Airlines. His first itineraries included Birmingham, Frankfurt, London, Manchester, Paris, Rome and Tripoli, currently expanding to a total of 50 routes. Now, Air Malta flights operate to Europe, Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean.
Among the qualities that make it stand out from its low cost competitors, such as the Ryanair and easyJet airlines, are the services provided to users of mail transport, merchandise and people flying for medical purposes abroad. Benefits that also favor the economy of the country.
Another striking factor of Air Malta is its relationship with the airlines Sky Airline, Adria Airways and Air New Zealand in order to provide coverage during the high season. The purpose of this relationship is to provide a plane that covers high summer demand, within the region, without damaging the regular operations of the attached company.
👜 Baggage regulations at Air Malta
All Air Malta passengers who have checked baggage must comply with a series of obligations and restrictions of the airline. Among them are the number of parts billed and the maximum weight of these, factors that will depend on the kind of trip that has been hired.
Air Malta allows you to check in, for free, a piece of luggage of 20 kg for most categories, except for the upper classes, such as Smart Business and Business Freedom, in which it is possible to add one piece of another 20 kg. The amounts fixed in the reservation can be varied, if the passenger needs it, being necessary to pay the rates set for excess weight, always remembering that you cannot exceed 32 kg per piece. If any luggage exceeds this maximum weight, it must be repackaged in separate bags to balance the weights and not exceed the limit.
In the cases where children and babies travel that do not exceed 2 years, the maximum weight for each one will be 10 kg. For children between 2 and 12 years of age, the weight limit will be the same as that set for adults.
