How To Travel To Malta

EuropeMaltaHow To Travel To Malta

By plane

Malta has its own national airline, Air Malta, which has frequent flights to numerous European, North African, and Middle Eastern destinations.

Ryanair serves the following airports: London Luton, Edinburgh, Eindhoven, Dublin, Madrid, Marseille, Trapani, Bristol, Pisa, Kaunas, Kraków, Stockholm (Skavsta), Seville, Valencia, Venice (Treviso), Wroclaw, Girona, Birmingham, and Bari. Easyjet operates flights to and from Belfast, Manchester, Newcastle, Rome, Milan Malpensa, and London Gatwick. Norwegian operates flights to and from Copenhagen and Oslo. Jet2 operates flights to and from the East Midlands, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, Manchester, and Newcastle.

The airport on the island, Malta International Airport (IATA: MLA), is situated in Luqa.

Outside the terminal building are buses to different places on the island (Valletta, Sliema, St. Julian’s, and so on). The bus station has ticket machines and timetables. As of May 2016, a one-way adult ticket in summer costs €2.00 (€1.50 in winter). It takes around 40-50 minutes to go to Valletta or Sliema.

By boat

There are regular quick ferries to Catania, Sicily (3 hours) and Pozzallo, Italy (90 minutes), although the waters may be rough with a high wave if it is windy. The journey takes almost twice as long on big passenger ships, but the prices are much lower, making it perfect for drivers of cars, trucks, or campers. Livorno, Salerno, Rome (Civitavecchia), Palermo, Genoa, and Tunis are among the other destinations. Discount airlines like as Ryanair, Windjet, and Efly, on the other hand, may be more convenient, with flying costs sometimes equal to the cost of a boat excursion.
