Malta International Airport today welcomed its four millionth passenger this year, achieving this milestone in record time: more than a month earlier than last year. The figure means that the airport saw an average of more than 12,000 passengers every day, enough to fill up Wembley Stadium each week.
The airport’s results are even more impressive when compared to other
European airports in its category. For the period ending September,
European airports reported a growth of 6.4% while the Malta
International Airport registered an increase of 7.2%. These accomplishments were mainly driven by the additional seat
capacity together with an improvement in average seat load factor to
reach an overall 79.6%. (Source: maltairport.com, 21-Nov-2014)
