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: maltairport.com, 12-Jul-2017)
