Passengers faced two-hour delays to collect their baggage from Heath- row's Terminal 2, while a number of passengers who departed from the same terminal had to travel to their destinations without their checked-in belongings. Air Malta passengers travelling to and from Heathrow Airport faced the same problems over the weekend. A spokesperson for the airline told MaltaToday that the company is in constant contact with the airport's authorities to reunite passengers with their luggage as soon as possible. "The airline apologised to its passen- gers for this delay but unfortunately this is due to circumstances beyond its control, and it is totally reliant up- on London Heathrow Airport sorting out the bags and delivering these to airlines to in turn, allow airlines to forward them to their customers." The backlog in undelivered luggage stemmed from a technical malfunc- tion in the terminal's bassage sys- tem. The malfunction has since been fixed, but it could still take days for accumulated luggage to arrive in the hands of their owners. Air Malta temporarily relocated to Terminal 2 at the start of the pan- demic following a slowdown in air travel. However, the airline will be trans- ferring its operations back to Heath- row's Terminal 4 on Wednesday 22 June. The airline says that this plan is still on track despite the luggage issues.
