 Annual traffic through MIA increased by almost one million passenger movements in just 12 months, making 2017 the fastest-growing year in the airport's history.

The Malta International Airport (MIA) welcomed its six millionth passenger in a single year on New Year’s Eve, a figure that beat all previous traffic records.

Manuela Fastner, the six millionth passenger, arrived in Malta on a flight from Düsseldorf on Sunday 31st December.

Annual traffic through MIA increased by almost one million passenger movements in just 12 months, making 2017 the fastest-growing year in the airport's history.

"This is our most impressive achievement in terms of traffic growth, which will see MIA register an increase of over 17 per cent over last year,” said Malta International Airport CEO, Alan Borg.

"2017 was a challenging year, and yet, our team delivered outstanding results whilst also maintaining the same levels of passenger satisfaction. This is the perfect occasion to thank the 3,000 airport staff for their commitment in providing the best service to our guests day in day out, and invite them to keep working towards our goal in becoming the best airport in Europe," said Mr Borg.

MTA CEO Paul Bugeja congratulated MIA in reaching this important milestone whilst emphasising how important expanded, year-round air connectivity was for the Maltese tourism industry.
