The Mediterranean isle airline is looking after its economy class customers – by offering them massages, something that is normally reserved for the higher-paying first class travellers.

The MailOnline says the carrier is providing the head, feet and hand massage for free on flights between Gatwick Airport in London and Valetta in Malta.

Air Malta says the ‘Sky Spa’ is to become available on a number of other selected routes and will be undertaken in conjunction with Myoka Spas, a local spa brand company.

The airline made the announcement this week on its Twitter account.
