Service variations


Go First product is only available from destinations specified above. However, the service may not have the same delivery process all the time. In general, Go First product refers to completing the boarding formalities at dedicated boarding lanes. At times, guests do not board the aircraft immediately after completing boarding formalities at the boarding gate but need to be transported to the apron to get onboard the aircraft. This is strictly a decision made by airport management team and might differ from flight to flight. Air Malta does not have the authority to control this. In the event that a bus will be utilised, the guests who bought the Go First product will have a dedicated bus and transported with the other priority guests.

Boarding the aircraft first will only be possible if a dedicated priority boarding lane has been set up. This might not always be the case and might differ from flight to flight basis based on the airport’s operational decisions and reasons. Air Malta does not have control over airport’s operational decisions and in cases of last-minute changes of the boarding gate/process for Air Malta flights, Air Malta is not deemed responsible if the service has not been delivered (even if the passenger previously paid for it).

In exceptional circumstances where the service was not given, such cases, guests are encouraged to  contact Air Malta customer care . Please keep the original receipt as a valid proof of purchase to be able to refer to in such cases.

Any requests for compensations would not be considered by Air Malta if submitted later than one month after the date of the flight.
