M.I.A. plc releases traffic results for 2015, 2016 forcase

Malta IAP is expecting at least 4.73 million passengers this year, a 2.4% increase in traffic from 2015 when 4,618,642 visitors were registered.

“Every year our challenge is to keep building on the year-on-year successes of the past decade, while investing strategically to cater for projected growth. This year is no exception. We are investing more than ever before while working closely with airlines and other partners to keep building our network and increase Malta’s connectivity,” MIA CEO A. Borg told a press conference.

He said the results of last year showed the airport was achieving its goal of increasing traffic in the winter months. December alone saw a 9% increase over last year, he pointed out, thanking the Malta Tourism Authority and the Ministry of Tourism for their continuous support in attracting new airlines and passengers. Throughout this winter, M.I.A. will be connected to another three airports, bringing the total to 57.

Three new airlines are expected to start flying next summer, including Volotea to Catania, Iberia Express to Madrid and Czech Airlines to Prague.

Meanwhile, EasyJet will launch a new route to Geneva and Ryanair will be expanding their operations by another ten routes in the summer, including Poznan, Baden-Baden and Cologne.

Flights will also be added to Athens, Budapest and Helsinki, through Aegean, Wizz Air and Finnair respectively, all relative newcomers to Malta International Airport.

Last year was a very positive year for M.I.A., with passenger growth of 7.7% over 2014, a total increase of 328,338 passengers. Aircraft movements increased by 6.3%, while seat capacity went up by 5.8%.

The top markets for 2015 remained the United Kingdom, which saw an increase of 4.7%, Italy, which increased by 13.3% and Germany which increased by 3.1%. Substantial increases were also registered from Turkey (82.7%), Poland (50.1%) and Switzerland (18.7%).

Crucially, seat load factor also increased to 81.1% from 79.7%, meaning planes are being filled closer to capacity. Meanwhile, Cargo and Mail was up by 5.6% from 15,547 tonnes in 2014 to 16,414 tonnes in 2015.

In his concluding remarks, Mr Borg thanked all the 5,000 employees working at the airport for the commitment and dedication they show every single day, hence making another record year possible. He added that through the collaboration with its partners, Malta International Airport continuously seeks to raise the quality of experience for passengers, with the goal of becoming the best airport in Europe.

M.I.A. plc releases traffic results for April 2016




Malta IAP welcomed 415,409 passengers last April, marking a 5.7% growth over the previous year and kick starting the busy, summer months ahead. This figure is comparable to the passenger numbers registered in the August peak of 2011 (427,575 passengers), just five years ago.

Apri'’s growth partially resulted from the launch of the airport's summer schedule, which features new routes, new airlines, and an increased flight frequency to a number of destinations. In fact this contributed to a seat capacity growth of 3.8%.

The top five traffic drivers for April remained largely unchanged from the previous months, with the United Kingdom holding on to its top spot, followed by Italy, Germany, and France.

The only exception was Poland, which placed fifth in the airport's top markets list. Poland’s 27.3% growth over the previous year stemmed from the introduction of the new Poznan route towards the end of March and an increased flight frequency to Gdansk.

A look back at the first four months of 2016 shows a record number of passenger movements at Malta IAP with over 1.2 million guests having passed through, up by 12% compared to 2015. (Source: maltairport.com, 3-May-2016)

M.I.A plc releases revised mid-year projections for 2016




Malta IAP is expecting 4.97 million passengers to pass through the airport by the end of the year, according to its revised mid-year projections. This would surpass all traffic records achieved so far. The first six months of this year alone already saw an additional 195,574 passenger movements compared to the same period last year, an increase of 9.8%.

Addressing a press conference, M.I.A. CEO A. Borg said this increase was even more significant as the growth was being registered in both peak and shoulder months, in line with the nation-wide strategy to promote Malta as a year-round destination.

He added that June alone registered an increase of 6.8% in passenger movements, continuing with the positive trends observed during the first five months of the year. This growth was stimulated by an increase in seat capacity and airlines' increased efficiency in filling up these available seats. In fact, seat load factor for the period between January and June reached 80%, while seat capacity grew by 7.4%.

Malta’s top market remains the U.K., with 612,413 passenger movements in the first six months of 2016, followed by Italy (459,657) and Germany (284,889). On the other hand, the markets that registered the largest growth were Turkey (37%) and Switzerland (36.4%), following the introduction of more frequent flights leaving Malta IAP to Istanbul and Zurich and Geneva, respectively.

In the meantime, other noteworthy developments for 2016 include enhanced winter operations and schedules by Ryanair, SAS and WizzAir and the introduction of new and added flights by Air Malta, Lufthansa, and easyJet. (Source: maltaiport.com, 13-Jul-2016)

M.I.A. plc releases traffic results for July 2016



Passenger movements at Malta IAP last month increased by 5.9% over the same month last year, partly due to an increased seat capacity of 3.1% and a better seat load factor, the airport said. In a company announcement, M.I.A. plc said that with an efficiency of 88% in filling up available seats, last month's seat load factor established a new record for July.

The top five markets remained relatively unchanged, with the United Kingdom topping the list followed by Italy, Germany, and France. With a marked growth of 20.8%, Spain secured the fifth spot, successfully re-establishing itself among Malta's top five markets for the first time this year.

The Spanish market is this year experiencing the highest growth rate when compared to the other markets. Meanwhile, Germany recorded the second highest growth rate, at 10.6%. This growth partly stemmed from the introduction of new routes to Berlin, Cologne, Düsseldorf, and Karlsruhe.

With July's passenger movements taken into account, the total number of passengers who passed through Malta IAP this summer exceeded two million.

Air Malta Registers Excellent Results on New Palermo Route

Date: Friday, 02 September 2016

In its first two months of operations Air Malta’s new route to Palermo has registered excellent results with load factors reaching an average of 90%. The twice weekly schedule to the Sicilian capital, which commenced on the 4th July, will be retained throughout winter 2016/7.

“We are excited with these encouraging preliminary figures,” commented Ursula Silling, Air Malta’s Chief Commercial Officer. “In just two months we have carried over 5,000 guests and we are on track to carry around 20,000 passengers in our first year of operation. Our low fares, coupled with the choice of products that include the ‘Best Value’ fares that offer child discounts, flexibility as well as seat selection for free or at a reduced price, are making Air Malta products more enticing to our guests”, added Ms Silling.

The airline has undergone extensive market research and customer surveys prior to launching this route which showed there was the demand and potential for this market. The airline reacted fast and introduced this service in a relatively short period this summer.

The services between Malta and Palermo are operating in addition to the 15 weekly flights to the island’s other important city of Catania. This strong presence in the Sicilian market reinforces Air Malta’s leading position serving the two islands and the national airline’s commitment to both markets.

Air Malta offers the best choice for travellers not only to Sicily but throughout Italy where the airline operate also with the most convenient timings to Rome and to Milan’s preferred Linate airport that is conveniently located close to the city. These frequencies bring Air Malta’s operations to Italy to a total of 34 weekly flights and the highest number of frequencies per destination compared to any other carrier.

With over 2,700 years of history, the Sicilian capital has a lot to offer to the Maltese wishing to visit this beautiful city. Likewise the Maltese Islands have a lot to offer to Sicilians from a rich cultural heritage to entertainment opportunities.

Air Malta’s flight schedule is operating as follows:

Monday
dep Malta 13:15h arr Palermo 14:15h
dep Palermo 15:05h arr Malta 15:55h

Thursday
dep Malta 19:50h arr Palermo 20:50h
dep Palermo 21:40h arr Malta 22:30h

More information is available on www.airmalta.com, by calling Air Malta’s Call Centre on +356 21662211, from Air Malta sales office at Malta International Airport or from Travel Agents in Malta or Italy.

M.I.A. plc releases traffic results for August 2016



August’s unparalleled passenger movements – 598,515 – have topped all traffic records previously established by the Malta IAP. This figure translates into a growth of 2.3% over last year, indicating that the airport was bustling with an average of 19,300 passengers a day.

August's numbers can be attributed to an increase in seat capacity, together with a high seat load factor (SLF) of 88.8%, which indicates that airlines were also more efficient in filling up the seats available, as more tourists chose to fly to Malta for their August break.

A glance at the airport's top five markets shows that, last month, the majority of tourists who flocked to the Maltese islands came from the U.K., Italy, Germany, France, and Spain, with the latter featuring as the fifth top driver of traffic to Malta for the second, consecutive month.

Healthy growth rates of 3.6% and 4.1% ensured that the U.K. and Italy respectively, retained their position as Malta IAP's top drivers of passenger traffic. Both these markets presently enjoy an enhanced network to Malta, following added flights on a number of routes such as Edinburgh and Catania and a new popular route to Palermo.

The markets recording the most significant growth, on the other hand, were Poland and Spain. Poland grew by 47% over last year after the introduction of Gdansk and Poznań brought Polish routes up to five. On the other hand, Spain recorded a 14.7% growth over 2015 due to a new connection from Madrid and increased capacity to Gerona.

Cargo and mail registered a decrease of 3.20% over the same month last year. (Source: maltaiport.com, 6-Sep-2016)

M.I.A. plc releases traffic results for September 2016



September became the third consecutive month to register more than half a million passenger movements this year with a total of 531,962 passengers welcomed at Malta IAP. This translates to an increase of 5.8% over the same month in 2015.

September's upturn was bolstered by improved connectivity to the Maltese islands throughout the summer. Seat capacity, which indicates the number of seats available to Malta, registered a 4.2% rise over last year. Moreover, at 87.5%, September’s seat load factor experienced a growth of 1.3%, indicating that airlines were very efficient in filling up these available seats.

Malta's top drivers of traffic remain the U.K., Italy, Germany, France and Spain, with all five markets registering varying degrees of growth ranging from 2% to 14%. The growth of the French market mainly stems from an increased capacity to one of France's major airports, Paris-Orly. Furthermore, September marks Spain's third consecutive appearance among Malta IAP's top five markets, following added flights on the Madrid route.

Although they did not secure a spot among the top five markets last month, both Poland and Switzerland experienced a remarkable hike in passenger movements compared to 2015, amounting to 36% and 14%, respectively.

Up until the Sep. 30th, Malta IAP hosted 3,894,040 passengers – a growth of 7.5% over last year. Aircraft movements grew by 2.4% while seat capacity increased by 5.3%. The seat load factor also rose to 83.4% compared to 81.7% last year. (Source: maltairport.com, Oct-2016)

M.I.A. plc releases traffic results for November 2016


The winter season opened on excellent footing at Malta International Airport, with November registering a staggering growth of 22.4% over the same month last year.

This is by far the highest monthly increase for 2016, going on to displace March’s 19% growth rate from the top spot. November’s spurt augurs well for the key stakeholders in the industry’s stepped up efforts, to ensure that the Maltese islands are an attractive, year-round holiday destination.

This growth in passenger movements was recorded in parallel with an upturn of 17% in aircraft movements and an increased seat capacity of 21.3%. This increase partly stemmed from the airport’s enhanced winter schedule, offering no less than 18 new connections for the season.

Airlines were also more efficient in filling up the available seats, with November having registered a seat load factor (SLF) of 82.4%. In absolute terms, the airport gained more than 63,000 passengers over the same month last year.

The airport’s top five markets all grew by varying degrees and featured a newcomer. Belgium made an appearance in this list for the first time, following increased connectivity to Brussels.

Outside of the top five markets, and in line with the airport’s strategy to recoup traffic from the Iberian Peninsula, Spain continued to grow at an impressive rate. The Spanish market’s 87% upturn resulted from the introduction of a twice-weekly flight to Valencia, increased operations to both Madrid and Barcelona, and Girona’s extension into the winter period.

November’s results further enhance Malta International Airport’s optimism for the winter period, as the airport focuses on welcoming 5 million passengers before the year is through. (Source: maltairport, Dec-2016)
