Malta International Airport plc - July Traffic Results

On 9 August 2022, Malta International Airport plc announced that during the month of July passenger movements increased by 14.2% from the previous month to 689,145 which, in turn, is 13.7% lower than the amount of 798,453 passengers welcomed in the same period in 2019.

The top markets for the month were Italy, followed by the UK, France, Germany, and Spain. In this respect, MIA also noted that while the Italian market grew by 3% over July 2019, the French market registered an increase of 41% largely driven by the introduction of flights to Paris Charles de Gaulle (by Air France) and Paris Orly (by Vueling). Meanwhile, seat capacity in July 2022 was at 85% of 2019 levels, while the seat load factor climbed to 88.3% which is the highest level MIA registered in July since 2016.

Since the start of 2022, MIA handled 3.03 million passengers which is 25% lower than the amount of 4.05 million recorded in the same period in 2019 but 9.2% higher than the corresponding months in 2016.
