So, you've made a reservation for a flight and received your ticket, but are having some problems checking in to your flight? We’re here to support you. Below, you can review some of the most common issues that crop up from time to time:
Tickets bought from travel agencies: If you made your reservation through a travel agent or another third party, you will still be able to use online check in, using your first name, last name, flight number and date only. Reservation codes that are not directly issued by Air Malta are currently not supported for online check in.
Change seat assignments after check-in: In order to change seat assignments after using the online check in service, it is necessary to contact the online Check in drop off counter at the airport.
Check in online for connecting flights: If your trip includes a connecting flight, you will only be able to check in online if:
- The connecting flight is operated by an airline having a ‘thru check in’ agreement with Air Malta: These are KLM, Air Berlin, Air One, Alitalia, British Airways, British Midland, SAS, Emirates Airlines, Hapag Lloyd, Lufthansa, Swiss International, North West and Qantas.
- You have a unique booking reference for the complete itinerary.
