September traffic grows by 12.8%
Malta International Airport welcomes over 700,000 passengers!
With 706,814 passenger movements recorded, September was yet another busy month in what is proving to be a record-setting summer for Malta International Airport. September was, in fact, the third consecutive month during which more than 700,000 passengers were welcomed by the airport team.
The August-September three-month stretch brought the peak holiday season to a close with more than 2.2 million passenger movements, making this the best quarter in the airport’s history!
Translating into an upturn of 12.8% over 2017, much of September’s traffic growth can be attributed to an increase in aircraft movements (+12.5%) and seat capacity (+14.1%) which stemmed from an enhanced summer flight schedule, SLF stood at 85.7%.
