Seat Dreams: Airline offers free massages to economy class passengers
Free massages are being offered to passengers in economy cabins on Air Malta flights between Gatwick and Malta.
Not even first class air passengers can expect a personal masseuse to ease flying nerves and provide some distraction from the children having a tantrum in the next row.
But Air Malta travellers in economy cabins are being treated to relaxing head rubs and hand massages on flights between Gatwick and Malta – completely free of charge.
Two professional therapists welcomed passengers to flights KM 116/7 to and from Gatwick last week with various beauty product samples, and later provided hand, feet and neck massages to relaxing music piped through headphones.
Passengers on the flights were also given Myoka Spas vouchers worth €20.
The in-flight services – billed “the Sky Spa” and offered in partnership with Maltese spa brand Myoka Spas – will be available “on selected flights”, according to Air Malta.
The national carrier says the spa offerings are “just the beginning” of a series of similar projects that it will be launching in the near future “aimed at enhancing customers’ experience.”
