What a win!
It is expansion time at Malta International Airport. After turning higher profits last year and registering its 45th consecutive month of passenger growth, CEO Alan Borg speaks about a €78 million investment, which the airport is using for expansion on customer service care and security.
Mr Borg says €28 million will be spent on improving the terminal building. The first phase, costing around €9 million, will start in October 2016 and will see the security area being transferred upstairs.
He says, "Having a hospitality background, I want the company to view passengers as guests. This move, which will take 18 months to complete, will lead to six more check-in desks in the departures area, the security area will also be bigger, allowing for an increase in the screening machines to six from four and a queueing capacity double the current one.
The second phase of the terminal project will consist of the construction of a new building alongside the existing terminal (on the Costa Coffee side) that will add 14 more check-in desks and four more gates upstairs. It will also provide more space for retail outlets. “The second phase will significantly improve the airport experience and a detailed evaluation process of traffic forecasts will take place once the first phase is over,” he says.
Malta has a fantastic offering and there are still too many people in the world who have not yet experienced the country.
“Valletta is such a wonderful city and now with boutique hotels going up, it can up its game. But there are also many undiscovered areas, like the Three Cities. Malta can become a city-break destination between October and March, offering culture, heritage and hospitality.”
Malta International Airport will soon introduce a car pooling system for its employees. They will input their details into a database, including travelling times to and from work, and the system will automatically pair individuals with similar travel needs. The employees will then receive a notification informing them of fellow workers who live in their vicinity and who have similar work schedules.
