"In fact, May's 858,402 movements exceeded the airport's previous passenger traffic record for the month, held by May 2023, by 18.%, or more than 132,000 movements. Last month's upswing in passenger traffic was observed in parallel with a 13.8% increase in aircraft movements, with a total of 5,607 take-offs and landings recorded in May, and a rise of 14.1% in seat capacity."


"A high seat load factor of 85.9% also demonstrated strong demand for air travel and efficient utilisation of available seats. Italy, the United Kingdom, and Germany continued to dominate Malta International Airport's market leaderboard, collectively holding just over 50% of the market share.
