Lost and Found

Inevitably, some of the millions of travellers flying to and from Malta, forget or lose something while they’re here. We do our very best to make sure that any lost items are returned to their rightful owners. Found items should be reported or handed over at the Customer Service Information Centres.  These are located in the Check-in Hall and near the Departure Gates. If you lost something on board an aircraft while travelling, please scroll down for more information.

If you’re looking for something you lost at the airport, we would need the following information from you:

  • Date, area and approximate time when the item was misplaced;
  • Description of item;
  • Contents, serial number, model, brand/manufacturer’s name etc.;
  • Colour and any other special features


Lost Identity Documents

Please note that lost / found official identity documents, such as passports and ID cards, are to be reported to the Police. The airport police station is located on Level 0 of the multi-storey car park – Park East – on the airport campus.

Items Lost On board Aircraft

Unlike items lost at the airport, objects found aboard aircraft do not end up at the lost and found department. Responsibility for these items falls to the ground handling company.  Of course, these lost possessions can still be recovered, but you will have to contact the ground handling company directly.
