Air Malta Interline Agreements
In 2012, Air Malta underwent a rebranding process that sparked some controversy, as the titles on the planes and signs only say Malta and omit the word Air. The company insisted that this was not a name change and the full name of the company remains Air Malta. Also, the headlines on the engines always say airmalta.com. The first aircraft to show the new colours was the Airbus A320-200 9H-AEN at the Malta International Air Show 2012. On the second and final day of the show, the A320 and a Spitfire performed a flypast as a final act. Air Malta and Air Canada have signed an interline agreement that allows affected airlines to issue electronic interline tickets to travel from Canada to Malta and vice versa. This will allow passengers to travel on an Air Canada flight from Canada, connected to Air Malta`s main European airport gateways. Air Malta plc (stylized as airmalta) is Malta`s national airline, headquartered in Luqa and a hub at Malta International Airport. It serves destinations in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. Air Malta has entered into around 190 interline ticketing agreements with other IATA airlines. According to the Association of European Airlines` quarterly review of May 2006, Air Malta is the airline that has lost the least passenger baggage. The amount of baggage lost in the first quarter of 2006 was 4.1 pieces of non-baggage per 1000 passengers. In your last post, you cited a page for Aegean Airlines.
I`m not sure of the relevance, because this is a totally different airline, which also doesn`t have an interline agreement with American. Air Malta has interline agreements with most airlines that fly to/from the US, but AFAIK does not with American Airlines. As Parklandwalk says, you just proved that Aegean has an agreement with AA, unimportant for an Air Malta flight. airmalta.com/information/customer-support/fl. Even on the. aegeanair.com/all-about-us/. He says they have an agreement. AFAIK Air Malta (KM) and AA do not have an interline agreement and therefore there is no chance to check baggage to Malta. If you want the luggage to be checked, buy a single ticket for your entire trip – not two separated. Even if two airlines have an interline agreement, they are not required to check your baggage (if both airlines are members of the same alliance, they will).
If the airlines have an interline agreement and are not part of the same alliance, you can always ask, but it is up to the check-in agent to check your luggage. “These results show the importance of codeshare agreements, especially for smaller airlines like Air Malta. Through such agreements, we are expanding our network and creating additional revenue streams,” said Paul Sies, Chief Commercial Officer of Air Malta. Your AirMalta link does not contain American Airlines and is therefore irrelevant. I don`t know why you connected to Aegean when you fly Air Malta, when they also don`t seem to be interline with AA. This is the American Airlines interline agreements page. There is no agreement with Air Malta: KLM, British Airways and Brussels Airlines experienced an average growth of 35% last year. This month, the airline`s overall interline revenue increased by 3% compared to the same period of the previous year. In winter, the company often leases aircraft to maximize revenue in the low season….
