Air Malta operates a fleet of ten Airbus A320 family aircraft manufactured by Airbus Industrie. It is composed of 1 x A319-112, 6 x A320-214 and 3 x A320-251N aircraft.

The Airbus A319 is a short to medium range, single aisle, twin-engine jet, having the longest flying range in its category, and is a shortened derivative of the highly successful A320. Otherwise, it is almost identical to the A320 in all other aspects. Our fleet is further composed of two derivates of the A320, also referred to as the A320ceo (current engine option) and A320neo (new engine option).

The A320neo is one of many upgrades introduced by Airbus to improve on cost-efficiency, range, payload and reduced emissions. Our A320neo aircraft are powered by the new-generation engines LEAP-1A, from CFM International. The aircraft are easily identifiable from their fuel-saving wingtip devices known as Sharklets.

The first of our A320neo aircraft joined the fleet in May 2018, whilst a further two aircraft joined the fleet in the summer of 2019. Our fleet renewal plan is for all aircraft in the fleet to be replaced with A320neo aircraft, over a period of 5 years.



Safety is one of our core values. Our customer commitment is to ensure that safety comes first, above all other objectives, both on the ground and in-flight. The fleet is maintained to the highest standards, with our engineering team ensuring that all our maintenance works meet or exceed the exacting standards and procedures set by the manufacturers and regulatory authorities.

We implement a Safety Management System which complies with European Regulations and industry best practice. It encompasses all aspects of our operation and we are driven by a culture of continuous improvement in all matters of operational safety.
