Malta Airport: construction disruptions until March 27

Airport passengers urged to check in early as terminal project enters new phase

Some disruptions expected until March 27

 

Check-in and security process at Malta International Airport may take longer than the norm in the coming weeks as its major terminal reconfiguration project enters a new phase.

Works on the project, which started last September, have temporarily shifted to the busier areas of the terminal building and are expected to cause some disruption until Monday, March 27.

Passengers are therefore being urged to arrive at the terminal at least two-and-a-half hours before their scheduled departure time, to allow plenty of time for check-in and security screening as guests may encounter longer queues throughout this phase.

Travellers may also be directed to make use of alternative routes to access the departures area.

MIA CEO Alan Borg said the terminal reconfiguration project, which will significantly enhance the passenger experience at MIA, is on course and on schedule.

“Though we have taken every step to minimise disruption caused by the works, an element of inconvenience is, unfortunately, inevitable and we thank passengers for their understanding.”

To mitigate the visual impact of the works, MIA has transformed sections of the hoarding being used to close off certain areas into an exhibition space.

Thirteen local artists have been selected to showcase works that celebrate the Maltese islands, ranging from paintings and photography to graphic design and poetry.

The terminal reconfiguration project, which consists of several facility upgrades, is expected to be completed next year.
