Malta International Airport (MLA)
Located next to the village of Luqa and on the south-eastern side of the island, Malta International Airport (MLA) is also nearby Gudja, Kirkop, Safi and Valleta. Malta Airport was fully refurbished in the early 1990s, giving the facility a much-needed facelift and improving its efficiency.
This busy facility provides an important gateway to Malta for international tourists, and also for Maltese residents heading from international destinations. A large proportion of the annual passenger flow, which numbers almost three million, is handled by the local airline Air Malta, which currently serves no less than 67 destinations.
Ground transportation options are somewhat restricted and travellers will find that the Gozo Airport Shuttle Bus service is amongst the most popular, connecting Mgarr and the harbour terminal at Cirkewwa. Regular and efficient public bus services are also available at Malta Airport and run to a variety of destinations. Taxis are also available for journeys to locations across the island, such as Birzebbuga, Marsaxlokk, Rabat and Valletta.
About Luqa / Malta Tourism
Malta is a popular visitor destination, rich in history, culture and natural charm. Amongst its attractions is the historic 16th-century walled city of Valleta. Here you'll find some magnificent classic architecture in the shape of cathedrals and palaces, with the Auberge de Castille offering an especially good example of the latter. The island is well geared to receive visitors and it has a solid tourist infrastructure.
Meanwhile, the ancient city of Mdina is a charming place dating back some 3,000 years and close to Malta Airport (MLA) itself. Attractions here include the 11th-century Roman Catholic Sicula-Norman Cathedral and the Norman-style Palazzo Falzon.
