Air Malta’s hand baggage policy review comes into effect on 1st July 2020
As part of our stated commitment to ensure Health and Safety to our passengers, we have made a few changes to your travel experience. We have been working with industry partners and following best practice guidance to ensure the highest standards of health and safety, not only onboard but throughout the customer journey. For this reason we have also reviewed the hand baggage policy.
Hand baggage may now be checked in free of charge. Only laptop bags and small hand bags are guaranteed on board, other hand baggage may be restricted subject to space availability in the cabin.
Please ensure to remove lithium batteries, valuables and dangerous goods from all checked in luggage.
New measurements of our hand baggage effective 10th February 2019 are:
We remind all our guests that the main hand baggage should not exceed 10kg in weight. The hand baggage needs to fit our baggage sizers located at all airports.
Hand baggage beyond the maximum weight and dimensions or second pieces (e.g. large handbags, backpacks, second hand baggage etc) will be subject to a charge of €60 per bag at check-in or at the departure gate. Charges at the gate must be paid by credit card.
Guests whose baggage is placed in the hold should remove any valuables, medicines, electronic equipment, spare batteries, e-cigarettes, or any other item they might need during the flight. For security reasons guests are also invited to lock the bag before handing it to our ground staff.
This policy applies to all our guests with an Economy ticket on all Air Malta flights, for both outbound and inbound travel.
How much can you bring?
Just as with checked-in baggage, the amount of Air Malta hand baggage you can take with you will depend on the travel class of your ticket.
