MLA: 22% Traffic Growth in November!
This is by far the highest monthly increase for 2016
The winter season opened on excellent footing at Malta International Airport, with November registering a staggering growth of 22.4% over the same month last year.
This growth in passenger movements was recorded in parallel with an upturn of 17% in aircraft movements and an increased seat capacity of 21.3%. This increase partly stemmed from the airport’s enhanced winter schedule, offering 18 new connections for the season.
This is by far the highest monthly increase for 2016, going on to displace March’s 19% growth rate from the top spot. November’s spurt augurs well for the key stakeholders in the industry’s stepped up efforts, to ensure that the Maltese islands are an attractive, year-round holiday destination.
Airlines were also more efficient in filling up the available seats, with November having registered a seat load factor of 82.4%.
