Air Malta has today launched a number of temporary initiatives with the aim of allowing customers more peace of mind when booking flights with the airline. These initiatives were thought to be an effective way of responding to the current changing situation related to COVID-19.

In order to ease the impact that Coronavirus concerns are having on customers and the airline’s inventory, Air Malta has taken measures which allow customers more flexibility when making new bookings or if they wish to make changes to their existing travel itinerary.

Customers who have booked an Air Malta flight prior to today can change their date of travel and destination for a charge of €10 per passenger per sector, together with the applicable fare difference and taxes. This facility is valid for Go Light and Go Smart fares only. Customers must confirm changes by the 31st March 2020 and all travel must take place by the 31st December 2020. This option does not apply to those who have already changed or cancelled their itinerary prior to today.

For those who wish to avail themselves of the above options are requested to contact the Airline’s call centre on +356 2166 2211 (pressing option 8) or the airlines sales office at Malta International Airport.

According to an Air Malta spokesperson, changes to Air Malta’s flight schedule are also being made, especially on Italian routes. He added that the airline is constantly monitoring the evolving situation and will announce further changes if the need arises.
