The airport's reopening is less than 24 hours away, and for those whose flights whose flights to and from Malta have been booked for the coming days and weeks, this is what you can expect from the new check-in process.

It's generally advised to be at the airport two hours before the flight's scheduled departure, however the time has now been increased to 2.5 hours.

Emotional greetings and farewells will have to be held off as only travellers will be permitted into the airport terminal.

Furthermore, there is one new document which is now as important as your passport: the health declaration form. Duly filled, this must be presented either electronically or as a printed copy prior to checking-in for any Air Malta flight.

Face masks must also be worn while in the airport, during boarding and for the duration of the flight. Only laptop bags, baby bags and handbags will be permitted on board, with all other hand luggage checked in free of charge.

Have a safe flight!

The term ‘drag queen’ is pretty well known (thank you Ru Paul’s drag race!) but how about ‘drag king’? Well, it’s about to get a whole lot more popular as Malta welcomes award-winning show Joan!
