The Airport

Inaugurated 20 years after Malta International Airport officially commenced its operations; SkyParks Business Centre is one of the brands owned by the airport.

Malta International Airport’s existent Terminal was inaugurated in 1992, less than three years after its foundation stone was laid down. This terminal replaced the old Luqa Terminal, which was under strain due to an increasing number of air passengers.

The Terminal project was undertaken by the Maltese Government, which went on to sell 40% of the airport’s shares to the Malta Mediterranean Link Consortium in 2002 and a further 40% to the general public, while retaining the remaining 20% of shares.

This marked a shift to full privatisation and the start of a new chapter for Malta International Airport. The majority shareholder in The Malta Mediterranean Link Consortium is Vienna International Airport, whose total consolidated holding in Malta International Airport amounts to more than 48%.

With the number of passengers exceeding the 7 million mark in 2019, the Company has rolled out ambitious Terminal expansion plans aimed at efficiently handling new record numbers of passengers.
