MLA highly commended at World Routes awards

Malta International Airport was highly commended at the World Routes Awards 2019, where it placed second within a category of airports hosting between 4 and 20 million passengers every year.

The winners of these prestigious awards, which seek to recognise excellence and innovation in route development and airline marketing, were announced at the Adelaide Convention Centre in Australia, which was packed with aviation stakeholders from across the globe.

“It is a proud moment to have our route development achievements recognised on the world stage. This recognition encourages us to continue working closely with government and the Malta Tourism Authority, our partner airlines, and the rest of the airport team to keep widening the Maltese islands’ network, whilst ensuring that sustainable results remain a measure of our success,” said Malta International Airport CEO Mr Alan Borg.

Efforts to drive year-round traffic to the Maltese islands, facilitated by the best connections, are part and parcel of the traffic development strategy for Malta. Proof of the success of this strategy is the airport’s winter schedule for 2019-2020, which will see 17 routes being extended from summer into the upcoming season and the launch of four new routes in October and November. This convenient schedule will encourage more tourists to discover the island in the off-peak season, in line with ongoing efforts to promote Malta as a year-round destination.
