Separate counters are available for Business Class and Economy passengers with the option to drop-off baggage at our counters for passengers using online or mobile check-in.
If you’re checking in at the airport, it’s crucial to plan ahead and get to the departure terminal in time. Check in counters at all airports open at least 2 hours before the schedule time of departure. This gives you enough time for checking in, going through security checks and boarding the plane.
Here are some specific guidelines according to your airport of departure to ensure you check in with ease:
- Air Malta check in counters at airports will close 45 minutes prior to the scheduled time of departure.
- Business Class passengers with hand luggage only can check in to Air Malta scheduled flights up to 30 minutes before the scheduled time of departure. Kindly note that the following airports are exceptions, and the below check in closure time applies:
Milan Malpensa – 35 minutes
St. Petersburg – 40 minutes
Rome Fiumicino – 45 minutes
- Check in for both Business Class and Economy passengers travelling to/from Tripoli, Benghazi, Algiers and Tel Aviv close 60 minutes prior to the scheduled time of departure.
Failing to check in to Air Malta flights in time or failing to arrive at the boarding gate in time, means that you will miss your flight. At that stage, Air Malta will not be liable for any losses or expenses incurred by your late arrival.
