About Malta International Airport

It is on the island of Malta in the Mediterranean about 8 km south of the capital, Valletta. The location of the airport is in the village of Gudja and is also called Luqa airport. The airport is an important port for Air Malta and Medavia. The local airlines offer many flights to mainly European destinations. The Irish company Ryanair also has a base at Luqa Airport. Many departures go to London and some other major cities such as Frankfurt and Rome, but also the nearby Catania, Italy.

Two runways are in use for all flights. They measure 2.375 and 3.545 meters long. All Malta arrivals take place in the same passenger terminal. Passenger numbers hovered around three million (arriving passengers) a year for years. However, from 2010 there has been a significant increase to more than 7 million passengers in 2019. The following years were difficult due to the pandemic. In 2022, the flight routes will increase again and the numbers will rise again.

History

Due to the Second World War, a few small airports were formed together. In order to get more people at the airport, it was suggested to expand the Malta airport departures after the Second World War in 1956. In 1958 the new terminal could be put into use and the first Luqa arrivals were a fact. It was not until 1977 that the runway was extended to give larger aircraft the opportunity to realize Malta flight arrivals. With new extensions to the baggage carousels, computers, new floor surfaces, etc., preparations were made to have more Malta flight departures. In 1992 a new terminal was opened to further expand the airport.
