Lifeline schedule set up by Air Malta to repatriate foreigners

Malta International Airport plc

Air Malta has setup a so-called ‘lifeline schedule’ to facilitate outbound travel for stranded individuals to their home countries and ensure essential connectivity for critical medical cases, apart from medical equipment and medicines to the islands.

As from midnight, no flights carrying passengers will be allowed to land in Malta, as one of the Government’s measures to control the coronavirus outbreak.

Starting from next Monday the 23rd of March, the airline will introduce a new schedule operating to London, Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels, Frankfurt, and Vienna. The schedule could be changed subject to demand.

Selected flights from the outbound only schedule will be available for individuals to book online on or through all travel agents and their systems. All the flights will be operated on a point to point basis and will be available to customers eligible for travel to these destinations based on normal entry visa requirements and any further restrictions imposed by the destination country on the day of travel.

The passengers are asked to be present three hours before the flight’s departure time.
