Malta International Airport has opened a new seating area at departures, part of continuous efforts to further enhance the passenger experience through the terminal.
Previously occupied by a retail outlet, the space that was converted into the newly unveiled seating area has improved the airport’s seating capacity by 10%.
Incorporating Maltese textures through the use of limestone, the fresh look of this area is likely to be adopted in other parts of the terminal, with the aim of creating a better sense of place for the millions of tourists who pass through Malta International Airport every year.
The area has introduced two seating options to cater to the diverse needs of both travelers looking to relax in the run-up to their flight and passengers looking to make the most of their wait by getting some work done.
The opening of the seating area is just one of Malta Airport’s many recent upgrades, all of which are geared toward creating a 5-star airport experience. In the next 12 months, travelers can expect to benefit from further improvements, as more retail space is freed up to allow for better passenger circulation and to enable the introduction of more seating.
Malta International Airport has also been working on finalizing plans for a terminal expansion, which will see the building occupy a much larger footprint and offer better facilities, as well as extended operational areas.
