Passenger traffic through Malta International Airport down by 99.6%

Malta International Airport has said that during the month April passenger traffic decreased by 99.6% compared to April last year.

The company that runs the airport, MIA, said in April 2,370 passengers who were repatriated to their country had passed through which is equivalent to the number of passengers who pass through the airport in an hour on a routine summer’s day.

Following the cessation of all commercial flights, the airport has continued to operate to facilitate essential flights. In fact, 73 repatriation flights were operated in April to and from eight countries, including the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands. The only increase of almost 40% over April last year was recorded in cargo flights.
