Air Malta is the national carrier of Malta and is 98% owned by the Maltese government. Air Malta services a very small route network with its own aircraft, but has access to a much broader international network through its code-share agreements with major international airlines.
Air Malta offers three cabin classes:
The Club Class is not the equivalent of first class on other airlines, but rather more like business class, with pairs of seats separated by tables and also airport perks before take-off. Electronic entertainment in both classes is via overhead screens and newspapers. Meals for those with specific dietary requirements can be arranged, but then the request must be made at the time of booking.
The frequent flyer program is called Flypass and its members earn KMiles when they fly with Air Malta. Note that the airline awards miles and does not use the metric kilometer measurement.
Air Malta operates a fleet of 12 narrow-bodied Airbus aircraft. The airline sometimes leases aircraft to other airlines in the low season in order to secure more revenue.
Air Malta was established in 1973 and has never had an accident. The airline also has a reputation as the safest baggage handler, with the lowest rate of baggage loss, although this is not remarkable in the case of such a small airline.
