May traffic through Malta International Airport experienced a 17.3 percent spike, surpassing 600,000 passenger movements for the first time.

A total of 643,089 passengers were welcomed by the airport team during the month. This record number for May exceeds the combined capacity of the 12 stadiums used in the World Cup games. May’s growth in passenger numbers was driven by a 16.6 percent increase in aircraft movements and a 17 percent increase in seat capacity.

Despite this strong increase in seats available on flights to and from Malta Airport, at 80.6 percent the seat load factor registered an increase of 0.1 percent. The top contributors to May traffic were the UK (+21.3 percent), Italy (+15.3 percent), Germany (11.3 percent), France (+19.7 percent), and Spain (+59.8 percent).
