Malta Airport Transport

When arriving in Malta, there are various options to go from the airport to your first destination or your booked hotel. If you have booked a tour, your package probably already includes Malta airport transport services. If you are visiting the islands on your own, here are the Malta airport transport options available for you:

In the Malta Airport, taxi service can be availed of 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to any destination in Malta. These taxi services have fixed rates. There are pre-paid tickets that can be purchased in the Arrivals area of the airport. There are even taxi tours available from the airport with fees that are fairly reasonable. Note though that these taxis are not regulated by meter. Make sure that you agree on the price first with the driver to avoid unnecessary surprises.

Regular Public Transport
The most affordable Malta airport transport option is to take the regular bus (bus #8). The bust goes from the Malta International Airport and ends at the main Bus Terminus in the capital city of Valletta. The bus passes through Ghaxaq, Gudja, Tal-Barrani, Marsa, Paolo, Tarxien,  Blata L-Bajda,  Floriana, Bombi, with Valletta as its last stop. It takes 30 minutes to get from the Airport to Valletta and vice versa. The bus leaves every twenty minutes during weekdays and every 30 minutes on weekends, and is available from 6AM to 9PM (weekdays) / 10PM (weekends). Their schedules are usually posted outside the waiting area.

Car Rental
There are about six car rental companies that are available in the Malta airport. Their rates are fairly uniform and you can check them out at the Welcomer's Hall from the Airport. Bear in mind that you may need to reserve cars in advance especially during the peak summer seasons.

Shuttle Van
There are private companies which arrange shuttle vans to take you to your hotel or your destination. You will need to book this service in advance. They are generally convenient and relatively cheaper than car rentals or taxis. You can check with your hotel if they offer shuttle services. They usually come out cheaper than booking shuttle vans from private shuttle companies.

Gozo-Airport Shuttle Bus
If you are staying at a hotel the island of Gozo, there are Malta airport transport shuttles that can take you from the airport to the sea passenger terminal. The sea passenger terminal is located in the north-western tip of Malta in Cirkewwa, where you then take a 20-minute ferry ride that takes you to the island of Gozo. From the Gozo sea terminal, you should arrange another transport service that will take you to your hotel.

Malta is a relatively small place and getting from one place to the next is convenient. Less than 30 minutes away from the center of Malta, the Malta International Airport provides convenient options for travellers to travel from the airport to their onward routes in the island.

Choose from the different Malta airport transport options based on your preferences and budget. It is best to book your transport early to make sure your Malta holidays are as stress- and hassle-free as possible.
