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.

I was travelling alone with my one-year-old son and they gave us a row to ourself so that my son could play and sleep comfortably which made the flight more enjoyable for everyone sitting near us.
