About The Airport

In 2019, Malta International Airport welcomed a record 7,310,289 passengers. This solid full-year performance was partly driven by improved flight schedules for both the winter and the summer months, which saw MLA welcome a new airline, inaugurate 18 new routes spanning three continents, and introduce other developments aimed at further enhancing the islands’ connectivity, particularly in the off-peak months.

Now connected to 34 countries via 98 direct routes, Malta International Airport remains committed to working with partner airlines to restore connections which have been lost as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic and to attract new air services to and from the Maltese Islands.
