Malta's Airport 4th Best In Europe For Queue Times

According to Casago, a vacation rentals and property management company, has assessed the best and worst airports around the world in terms of queueing times, and Malta’s International Airport came in 4th place. 

‘To discover which airports are the best and worst for queueing times, Casago analysed passenger reviews from airlinequality.com, where each review gave queueing times a rating between 1 and 5 stars.’

When it came to Europe, Malta ranked in 4th, just after Germany’s Stutgart Airport and just before Portugal’s Porto Airport. 

Malta International Airport received an exact 60% rating in the % of 4 to 5 reviews, with the highest 66.67% given to Serbia’s Belgrade Airport. 

On the other end, France’s Grenoble Alpes Isere Airport received a mere 1.59% rating, the worst ranking for a European airport. In fact, France had 3 airports in the bottom cohort. 

However, that wasn’t all the Maltese were highlighted for. According to the key findings, people from Malta leave the fewest positive reviews (21.21% of 4 or 5 stars). The US is the second most to have its citizens leave the least amount of positive reviews at 24.96%.

PN Politicians Call Out Rubbish Problem In Malta

Various Nationalist Party MPs have took to social media to call out the seemingly ongoing problem with trash and rubbish around the Maltese islands. 

Former Opposition leader Adrian Delia posted an image of the BCRS vending machines, with one particular set of vending machines having broken glass and other rubbish on the floor in front of them. 

‘A picture speaks a thousand words’, wrote the MP. ‘The machines w never needed. Turning streets into trash zones and people into beggars’. 

The issue was also highlighted by Darren Carabott, who shared images of unwanted items and other trash thrown into Maltese countrysides. ‘The rubbish issue in our country is continuing to grow. 8 months ago, a reform which is not working was put in place.’ 

PN MP Alex Borg also took to social media to offer various recommendations to address the situation, addressing not just trash pick up schedules and systems but further enforcement. 

The issue had also been highlighted by Eve Borg Bonello, who shared footage of abandoned areas as well as rat infestations.
