  • Malta International Airport plc  published the traffic results for March 2021. Passenger traffic totalled 32,033 movements last March. Translating into a drop of 93% compared to the same month in 2019, this traffic result reflects the hurdles – including low consumer confidence – still being faced by the aviation industry a year into the COVID-19 pandemic.
    • A rapid vaccination roll-out among the local population together with government’s recently announced plan for the restart of tourism on the 1st of June bode well for the second half of the year. However, the successful revival of air travel is also highly dependent on the restoration of consumer confidence in the industry in the build-up to summer.
