Last July’s full-month traffic for the Malta International Airport (MIA) is comparable to traffic for just the first week of July 2019. In fact, MIA registered an 80.9% decrease in passenger numbers in July.

In a statement issued by the MIA explained that a passenger performance analysis was conducted by the Airports Council International (ACI). This showed that, on average, European airports registered a 78% decrease in passenger numbers last July. According to the same analysis, Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom and France, all of which were among Malta International Airport’s top five markets for July 2020, reported drops in passenger numbers that ranged between 74% and 87%.

MIA wishes to remind the public to be cooperative while travelling, and respect fellow guests and airport employees. This is by wearing their face mask, practising social distancing and maintaining good hand hygiene.

Travellers are also reminded to complete and submit any forms required for entry in a country before getting to the airport. For more information, please visit here.
