aviation: Luqa Airport reports strongest first quarter ever


The first quarter of the current year was successful for the only special commercial airport in the Republic of Malta. The subsidiary of Flughafen Wien AG had 1,245,525 passengers, more than ever before at the beginning of the year.

In March 2023, Malta International Airport was used by 487,117 passengers. That was two percent more than before the crisis. The management attributes this development to a high backlog demand for air travel. The load factor of the flights has also increased: With an increase of 2.2 percent compared to 2019, the SLF was 83.5 percent in March.

Italy, the UK, Germany, France and Poland were the controlled markets, accounting for 63 percent of March traffic. Of these five key observations, the UK and Germany continued to remain below 2019 levels, while the other three markets saw different growth rates.

A look at Germany’s performance shows that while passenger numbers to and from that market remained below pre-pandemic levels, an improved SLF of 90 percent helped push France into third place. Connections between Malta and Germany will be flagged up this summer by three more routes, in addition to the routes offered last winter, which should further enhance the performance of this market.
