Monday, July 9th, 2018

On 9 July, Malta International Airport plc announced its June traffic results revealing a 14.6% increase in passenger movements to a record of 663,088 passenger movements. The growth reflected the 15.1% increase in aircraft movements, a 14.4% increase in seat capacity as well as an unchanged seat load factor of 82.7%.

The announcement also noted that four out of the five top markets, namely UK (+14.6%), Italy (+18.9%), France (+17.8%) and Spain (+49.1% on the back of three new route to Malaga, Seville and Bilbao as well as increased frequency on the Barcelona route) registered growth whilst Germany was the only top market to register a 3% decline. The latter was due to a reduced schedule by TUI cruises.
