The Air Malta pet policy is as follows:
You have three options to carry your pet on Air Malta scheduled flights: Pets carried in the passenger cabin (PETC) – only cats & dogs up to 10 kgs including container; Pet as Accompanied Checked in Baggage (AVIH) – cats, dogs, hares, rabbits, ferrets and birds up to 32kgs including container; and Pet in Cargo hold.
In the passenger cabin your pet/s, including the container may weigh up to 10 kgs.
As of April 1, 2019, pet as Accompanied Checked in Baggage (AVIH) has been updated to include hares, rabbits, ferrets and birds.
On those routes that cannot accommodate your Pet either as accompanied baggage or in the passenger cabin, you have the option of sending your Pet in the aircraft hold as Cargo. In that case please contact the Cargo Reservations on phone number +356 2247 3700 or your cargo agent and they will guide you through the process.
Taking a pet to a foreign country involves preparation and planning far in advance of your departure date. Requirements for pet travel to a foreign country are set by the destination country. If you are you traveling to another country and bringing along your pet you’ll need to meet the animal health requirements of the country you are visiting.
