Malta International Airport
Malta International Airport is celebrating 30 years since the inauguration of the present air terminal building. Originally designed to handle 2.5 million passengers, the terminal, which has evolved greatly throughout the years, saw a record 7.5 million passengers in 2019 alone.
Being the point of entry for around 97% of all tourists visiting Malta, Malta International Airport strives to curate excellent airport experiences which leave great first and last impressions of the islands on visitors. The team’s commitment to the delivery of an excellent service to its guests landed the airport the ‘Best Airport in Europe’ award for four consecutive years between 2018 and 2021.
Malta International Airport is now seeking to increase connectivity to the Maltese Islands by exploring new route development opportunities together with existing and potential partner airlines. A number of infrastructure projects that are in the pipeline, including the multi-million investment in the construction of Apron X, are geared towards supporting the airport’s recovery and eventual growth.
The Apron X investment will encompass several environmental considerations, such the construction of a reservoir to improve rainwater harvesting, as Malta International Airport continues to prioritise sustainability.
Malta International Airport also seeks to invest in the Maltese Islands’ environmental, cultural and artistic heritage through the independent Malta Airport Foundation. The Foundation’s mission is to enhance the islands’ tourism product, particularly in Malta International Airport’s neighbouring villages.
