"no hot food available"

(United Kingdom)

Malta airport, 7.30am and there is no hot food available anywhere! Hard Rock Cafe has no food. McDonalds is for some bizarre reason available in arrivals but nothing in departures but a very limited selection of unappetizing cold sandwiches and cakes. Very annoyed and hungry.

"very friendly staff"

(Malta)

Although I myself am Maltese, I have been to quite a few airports now and I have learned to appreciate Malta Airport. The toilets are well-maintained with cleaners going in to clean every couple of hours. Queues are never long (I have waited ten minutes maximum), very friendly staff, a few cafes and shops where one can kill time and free unlimited wifi. I used to take these things for granted but after going to 3 different airports this year alone, I have learned to appreciate what we have.

One of my favorite airports. It's not too big, so the waiting lines aren't too long, there are lot's of shops, plenty of seats and even massage chairs.

"this airport does it right"

(Russian Federation)

This airport does it right: it's a small airport so check-in, customs in and out, and departures are extremely fast unlike some other small airports that are a disaster. The best part is, wifi is accessible at the check-in terminal and after customs in the waiting area. The wifi is super fast and no diddling around with some ridiculous registration or time limit. I've been in all sorts of airports in North America, Europe, and throughout Asia: nobody else even the lounges match this speed. The car rental counter is in the airport, and you just walk out about 100m to pick up your car, none of this shuttle bus nonsense like other places.

Malta Airport customer review

(Ireland)

I wouldn't come here again. Their is no online check in bag drop off point. So if you do check in online you still have to queue up to check the bag in. I decided to go to the food court. I had 3 bags. The food court is down 2 flights of stairs yet their is no lift or anything. I had to carry my bags down then all the way back up. Also the food court it is very warm and lots of flies about. Their are no airport staff about to help you like any other airport. This is a very unconventional airport and do things different than anywhere else!

Malta Airport customer review

(Netherlands)

I've been coming to and departing from this airport for many years now. Overall I'm very happy with the efficiency of this airport especially in low-season. Last time I retrieved my luggage within 20 minutes of disembarking the aircraft. Those 20 minutes were partly spent by travel to the luggage reclaim (about 10-15 minutes in total) and a bit of waiting time. My departure was okay. The only thing I missed was a dedicated baggage drop-off counter for people who checked in online. Security is tight without becoming ridiculous and the air-side is diverse despite its size. There is a big duty free shop for alcohol smokes and perfumes. Other smaller shops scattered over the departure area cater to the needs of people looking for books/magazines jewellery clothes and more. There are also two cafe/bistros and a Hard Rock Cafe with shop. Prices are what you expect of an airport (more expensive than outside) but not ridiculous. Overall it's a great airport for arrival and departure!

Malta Airport customer review

(United Arab Emirates)

Small and friendly airport. Check in easy enough even for large B777 aircraft note that no priority queues are provided for EK flight. Basic facilities airside with ongoing work to improve facilities next time I will stay landside and pass through security at a later time. Note that international flights have to pass through a second security check which takes time and meant I only got to the boarding gate during final call. Busses to the aircraft of good quality and short ride doesn't bother anyone.

Malta Airport customer review

(United Kingdom)

How an airport should be clean and efficient with pleasant staff. On arrival no queue for immigration and a short wait for luggage. On departure no queues for check-in security or passport checks. It was not particularly busy when we left but there appeared to be plenty of seating and also a fair variety of shops and food outlets. Taking the bus to and from Valletta was very easy and cheap (€1.30!) other parts of the island are also served. All in all one of the best airport experiences I have had in years well done Malta.

Malta Airport customer review

(United Kingdom)

MAN-MLA return with Easyjet. First time in Malta so not sure what to expect. On arrival: bags on the belt and out of the terminal within 15 minutes of landing no queue at immigration. On return: no queue for bag drop cleared security within 5 minutes with no "shoes off!" nonsense. Plenty of shops and cafes airside and in the Schengen area but few facilities in the small non-Schengen area - so non-Schengen passengers are better-off if they don't head for the gates too soon. Apart from the toilets (which aren't too bad but could be better) the whole terminal is clean and tidy. All staff are friendly and polite; in fact I'd say this is the friendliest airport I've ever used. An absolute joy to use compared to LHR MAN etc. and a credit to a wonderful country.

Malta Airport customer review

(United Kingdom)

Perfectly nice little airport and easy to navigate. Getting through check in and security was quick and efficient with plenty of staff to direct people. General airport seating is metal and not at all comfortable but we made coffees last an hour and a half and sat in the cafe - soft and comfortable chairs there. Prices in the shops are the usual rip-off (1.75 euros for a small bottle of water) but it's the same in any airport. I would happily use Malta airport again. A definite improvement on Pisa!
