Malta International Airport plc - June Traffic Results

On 13 July 2022, Malta International Airport announced that during the month of June passenger movements increased by 8.8% from the previous month to 603,532 which, in turn, is 16.4% lower than the amount of 721,565 passengers welcomed in the same period in 2019. The top markets for the month were Italy, followed by the UK, France, Germany, Spain (which returned among the largest markets after seven months) and Poland.

MIA explained that the rate of recovery in passenger movements was marginally stronger than the rebound in seat capacity (-17.7% when compared to June 2019). On the other hand, the seat load factor of 85.5% achieved in June 2022 was superior to that recorded in May 2022 (81.4%) and June 2019 (84.1%). Meanwhile, the total number of passenger movements since the start of 2022, amounting to 2.35 million, was 7.7% short of the level of traffic of 2.54 million recorded in all of 2021. Moreover, the total number of passengers welcomed in the first half of 2022 was just 11% lower than the total traffic of 2.64 million recorded in H1 2017, and also represents a recovery of 72.1% of the volume of traffic recorded in the first half of 2019.
