Malta Int'l Airport hosted 578,827 passengers in June 2017, translating into an increase of 17.5% over the same month last year. June's growth partly resulted from Malta IAP's recently launched summer schedule which is its busiest yet.

In fact, aircraft movements in June grew by 11.7%, reaching a total of 4,071 movements. In addition to this, seat capacity increased by 15.5%, while seat load factor improved by 1.1%.

The airport's top five markets in June were the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, France, and Spain. These markets all registered varying degrees of growth, with the Spanish market experiencing the most marked increase, at 38.2%.

June's numbers bring the total number of passengers for the first half of the year up to 2,639,712. (Source:, 12-Jul-2017)
