Air Malta offering online check-in

National airline Air Malta has made a new online check-in facility available to its passengers.

People travelling with or without baggage can check in online and print their boarding passes at home.

Customers can also choose their seat on the aircraft through the web check-in facility, which will be available between 23 hours and two hours before departure time.

On arrival at the airport, passengers with luggage should proceed to the drop-off web check-in counter to deposit their bags.

The service is available from Malta to EU countries and also from gateways including Gatwick Airport, Stansted Airport and Birmingham Airport to Malta.

Joe Cappello, chief executive of Air Malta, said: "With web check-in Air Malta is continuing to invest and make use of innovative technology to enhance our customers' experience.

"We are not only simplifying the check-in process but also saving valuable time [for] our passengers."

Flights to Malta are available from a number of UK hubs, including Manchester Airport, Edinburgh Airport and Leeds-Bradford Airport.
