Travelling with Children
We will do our utmost to help and ensure a pleasant flight for those adults and families who travel with children within their party.
We consider those passengers aged 11 years and 11 months or younger to be Children, and refer to newborns up to the age of 1 year 11 months as Infants.
Children travelling in Economy Class are allowed 20 kgs free baggage weight, whereas children traveling in Club Class are allowed 30 kgs. An Infant is allowed 10 kgs, irrespective of the class of travel.
Baggage-pooling is permitted between passengers traveling on the same routing to the same final destination.
A collapsible buggy is carried free of charge on all Air Malta operated flights. You may keep the buggy until you get to the aircraft steps. It will then be stowed in the aircraft hold, and will be delivered to you with your baggage upon arrival at your destination.
As infants travelling on Air Malta flights do not occupy a seat, for added comfort you may wish to purchase an extra seat through our international call centre. This will allow you to carry any Air Malta approved car-seats on board our aircraft to be used by your infant during the flight. Approval and further information may be obtained from Air Malta’s Passenger Handling Section on :
Tel: +356 2369 6479.
Infants travelling on infant fares (no seat) must be passengers who are under the age of 2 years for the entire journey (ie, departure date of all segments within ticket validity). An infant who reaches his/her second birthday before utilizing the return segment of the air ticket will be classified as child for the return segment. Air ticket reservations for such cases may be made with our International Call Centre, Air Malta sales offices or your travel agent. Online bookings are not possible.
