WATCH: Air Malta Gets A Nightclub Makeover With Party In The Sky

En route to Ibiza, Maltese partygoers got a head-start on the action

Maltese partygoers heading to Ibiza wasted no time getting their hedonism on, as last Thursday saw Malta's first ever 'Party in the Sky', which did what it says on the tin by allowing passengers to let loose and turn the plane into a dancefloor. 

Put together in collaboration with Events by Martin, Air Malta reports that the event was a huge success.

The airborne party saw DJ Ruby and Daniel Pereaux doing their thing to an enthusiastic band of travelers 39,000 feet up from the ground, working on a custom-made sound system designed by Best Team Audio, with visual embellishments courtesy of Nexos Lighting. VIP guests were treated with special inflight service upon boarding the aircraft while the airline ensured they had nothing to worry about on this unique experiment of a flight. 

Speaking to Lovin Malta, the airline said that the event had been over a year in the making, and that all possible security measures were taken into consideration before the 120 passengers were allowed aboard. 

"A lot of safety precautions were taken. From the type of equipment that could be carried onboard to conform with aviation regulations, to meetings with regulatory authorities to ensure every risk is mitigated: from the screening of passengers on boarding to alcohol consumption limits to music sound levels. Various risk assessments were drawn by respective departments from ground handling to flight operations to flight services (cabin crew). Each risk was mitigated against," the airline said, adding that, "The flight proved to be a success with guests sharing their delight to be part of such a unique experience."

So, for the sake of the island's party-hungry populace, here's hoping the event is repeated for yet another band of eager hedonists!
