The ban does not apply to:
 special flights.
Air Malta shall operate such flights as directed by the Government of Malta.
Air Malta customers affected by this ban have the following options:
 Maltese Nationals affected from this travel ban and who are currently outside Malta need to contact the Ministry for Foreign and European Affairs Office. Residents can contact this office on +356 22042200 or by email on sitcen.mfea@gov.mt.
The Ministry will be organising repatriation flights.
