Malta International Airport (MLA)


View Larger Map

The foundation stone of the present air terminal was laid in September 1989 and inaugurated in record time 29 months later in February 1992. Malta International Airport became fully operational on March 25, 1992, effectively closing down the old Luqa airport after 35 years.

The public perception of the airport is that it is a clear example of progress, improved technology and modern standards. Malta International Airport has always been a role model for other organisations and is a prime force for change, innovation and creativity in Malta’s civil aviation history.

After building a sound base through experience and investment, in July 2002 the Government of Malta sold 40% of its equity to the Malta Mediterranean Link Consortium Ltd., and eventually a further 40% to the general public thus opening a new chapter for MLA as it is now a fully privatised company with a vision to develop further the country's main gateway.
