6.3 million passenger movements at MIA in ten months

Malta International Airport has hosted more than 6.3 million passenger movements between January and October.

The Airport pointed out in a statement that this figure translates into 6.7% growth over the same comparable period last year, and is an indication the airport will end the year with a record of new traffic, meaning over seven million passenger movements.

The first ten months of the year all registered good performances and various growth levels, with the summer season – from April to October in the aviation industry – registering a 7.7% increase in passenger movements. In parallel with this growth in passenger numbers, a 5.6% growth in aircraft movements has been observed, as well as a 6.8% growth in seat availability on Malta-bound flights.

The top five markets for the season were the UK (+3.3%), Italy (+3.7%), Germany (+17.3%), France (+8.4%) and Spain (+9.3%). Malta International Airport’s connections with these popular markets have continued to be strengthened in summer through the introduction of a number of new routes, including flights to Exeter, Cardiff, Verona and Perugia, and more frequent flights to various other routes.

The summer season ended in October. This month registered an 8.8% increase, thus exceeding a 700,000-passenger movement for the first time.
