Getting around by air

Malta is well connected to Europe and North Africa, but there are no direct flights into Malta from places further afield. If you're flying from elsewhere, it's best to travel to a major European hub, such as London, Amsterdam or Brussels, then join a direct connecting flight to Malta.

Airports & Airlines

All flights arrive and depart from Malta International Airport, 8km south of Valletta. The airport has good facilities, including ATMs and currency exchange, internet access, a tourist office (open daily), left luggage, and regular, inexpensive bus connections to Malta's major towns and to the Gozo ferry. The Maltese national airline is Air Malta, a small airline with a good safety record.


High season in Malta is June to September and ticket prices are at their highest during this period. A month or two either side is the shoulder season (April, May, October), while low season is November to March.

Middle East
