COMMENTS Air Malta Flypass is not an overly complicated program loaded with hidden rules and red tape. It is what it is: a small, straightforward plan for a small, straightforward carrier.

That said, Air Malta does shake things up a little by offering a program called KManager, which gives corporations and other organizations the chance to earn miles. Many other programs only allow personal memberships and will not award miles to an entity such as a corporation; this can be a fairly lucrative proposition for organizations that conduct a large volume of business travel in the area. The KManager program also has three tiers (Start-Up, Achiever, and Platinum) and each tier has its own distinct portfolio and benefits.

Flypass miles expire after four years allowing members time to save for a desired award. Members can purchase miles to top-off their accounts, and even members of the lowest tier can still purchase up to 20,000 miles annually, which is enough for an award ticket to certain destinations. Air Malta Flypass offers many of the basic benefits associated with larger programs and sets itself apart by offering features like KManager.
