About Air Malta

Malta's flag carrier Air Malta was founded in 1973 and is based at Malta International Airport with headquarters in Luqa. The airline is a state-owned carrier and became operational in 1974, the same year in which Malta became a republic. It is the successor to the previously existing carrier, Malta Airlines. The airline's original routes were to London, Frankfurt, Paris, Manchester and Tripoli.

Today their fleet of 8 Airbus planes are used to fly routes to nearly 40 destinations across North Africa, Europe and the Middle East. Some of the airline's top destinations include Algiers, Berlin, London (both Gatwick and Heathrow Airports) and Istanbul. While the airline has codeshare agreements in place with Swiss International Airlines, Aeroflot, Turkish Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Air France, Emirates, Lufthansa, Meridiana, Etihard Airways and Air France, it is not a member or an affiliate of any alliance such as SkyTeam, oneworld or Star Alliance.

Air Malta baggage allowance also has a maximum size of 20 x 40 x 55 cm for hand luggage. Passengers should be capable of lifting their own hand luggage to place it in the overhead storage compartment. Small personal items such as umbrellas, cameras and laptops are also accepted on flights.

Maybe just little more leg room I am not very tall but if the passenger in front has there seat back it makes it uncomfortable

Heathrow - Luqa ( LHR - MLA )
4.0 /5
Date 2017-11-11 City UK Age 51-70 Class Economy

The return flight was delayed and Airmalta would have been aware 3 hours beforehand ie the flight had not left UK as we were due to be boarding in Malta. Please persuade the Airline to treat us as adults and let us know of delays rather than waiting until boarding time. Had we been aware early enough we could have spent time in the airport more comfortably than simply sitting in the departure lounge. Otherwise well done to Airmalta to manage to leave Heathrow and get us home
