The Malta International Airshow’s static display will be open to children under the age of five who are not in possession of a negative COVID-19 PCR test, the show’s organisers have confirmed. 

Yesterday, Lovin Malta reported a statement by the organisers which said that in order for the event to be in line with the latest COVID-19 safety measures, the event would not be open to anyone without a COVID-19 test or vaccine certificate. This, they said, included children under the age of five up until the age of two. 

“We refer to our previous post regarding the PCR/rapid tests which apply for children aged five to 11 and pregnant women. Children under the age of 5 do not need to present a COVID-19 test result and can be accompanied by a fully vaccinated parent or guardian. 

The popular airshow is returning this year after a three-year absence, with the world-renowned Red Arrows set to return to the island.

Malta has vaccinated over 90% of its eligible population, including children 12 and over.

News of the restrictions was not well received by members of the public, many of whom couldn’t believe that two-year-olds were being expected to be tested in order to attend the open-air event.
