Reviews – What People Are Saying
I was surprised when i found out the large numbers of positive reviews that refers to the quality of services that Malta International Airport offers to their valued customers. I guess judging the exterior of this small and simple airport doesn’t really mean that they offer cheap services and average quality facilities. I was wrong, and by reading these comments; I was impressed on how the airport really serves their customers:
“Nice small airport. Friendly staff, if hard to find specific help at times (the arcade chewed up our money, and there was no one in sight to ask). A decent amount of entertainment and food at hand for the size of the airport, and it’s really clean and looks nice. Arrival was easy with a fairly quick exit and departure was comfortable, with WiFi available in most corners of the building. The shops ain’t great in duty free, kinda hoped for better Malta merchandise as I didn’t get a chance during the trip. Nice overall.”

“A small but very efficient airport. Just in the arrival hall, there is a tourist information centre and a counter to sell you the bus pass. It is a good place to buy a bus pass here as you can only get one in limited places inside the cities. Outside airport, there are different airport bus linking to main cities in Malta, very convenient.”
