Malta Airport (Maltese: Ajruport Internazzjonali ta’ Malta, IATA: MLA, ICAO: LMML) is the only airport in Malta and it serves the whole of the Maltese Islands. It is located on island of Malta, between Luqa and Gudja, and occupies the location of the former RAF Luqa. It was completely re-furbished, becoming fully operational on 25 March 1992. It is still referred to by locals as Luqa Airport, and sometimes as Valletta Airport internationally, as it is located 5 km (3.1 mi) southwest of the Maltese capital Valletta. The airport serves as the main hub for Air Malta and a base for Ryanair. It is also home to the Area Control Center and hosts the annual Malta Airshow, visited by military and civil aircraft from various European and other countries. The airport is operated by Malta Airport plc.

Malta International Airport air terminal operations include general passenger services, and the operation of an extensive range of retail services at the airport, airside and landside shops, restaurants and other outlets, which are all operated on concession agreements. The airport also leases office space to airlines and other travel related operators at the airport. Malta International Airport is a member of the ACI-EUROPE (Airports Council International) and a number of company officials sit on specialised committees and working groups within this council.

Malta International Airport has improved services for disabled and reduced mobility people to ensure an easier transit through the airport terminal to the aircraft and similarly on return. The head office of Medavia is on the airport property.

Malta Airport Reviews

The airport is easily accessible from every side of the island thanks to many public buses and private vans. At the airport you can find plenty of coffee shops and other shops with souvenirs, clothes, etc. The prices are competitive. Unlimited and fast WiFi is available with no extra charge. Security check is not annoying. Unfortunately, as the Maltese Islands are getting more and more popular among tourists, the airport tends to be overcrowded.

Nice and modern airport with many cafés and duty free shops. Free WiFi worked excellent. I enjoyed my waiting time and every member of stuff was very nice to us. Organization during check-in and boarding was also great - everything was quik so we could enjoy our coffee at Costa.
- Tereza Bucharová

This airport is very cute . It's small , u don't get lost. It was good because we felt welcome and the cab service stood right at the arrival hall. They had free WiFi which was great.Tottaly coming back someday.
- Adrian Trif

Small and well maintained airport. Clear signage and friendly staff all over. Easy (but perhaps slow) to get to from all sides of the island with the extensive bus lines. Food options are a little limited, but Costa Coffee is a nice cafe.

Love this airport! nice Terrace for looking over at the airplanes. Small but convinient. Not good for long layovers etc. Security is quick and nice
- Jim Badanis-Kapirnas

Small terminal, but well made airport, enough modern. Free wi-fi, some options to have a meal (check the -1 floor) and big duty-free shop. The airport has a luggage storage as well, and the kiosk where you could buy bus tickets.
