A statement published by the Malta International Airport has revealed that 428,426 passengers travelled through the Malta International Airport last month, making October the airport’s best performing month since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak.

“Despite this encouraging result, which can be partly attributed to the easing of more entry restrictions by government and the mid-term holiday effect, last month’s traffic was still 39.1% lower than October 2019 levels,” the statement read. The drop in passenger numbers compared to October 2019 comes in parallel with the drop in aircraft movements and seat capacity.

The statement also highlighted that the United Kingdom, which simplified testing require for fully-vaccinated travellers at the beginning of October, still tops the Malta International Airport’s list of best-performing markets, sustaining the UK’s long-standing top spot with 110,800 passengers in October. Italy, Germany, France and Spain follow with a cumulative total of 170,991 passenger movements between them.

The University of Malta has reached to its students to reveal that it may hold another graduation ceremony for students who have not yet received their vaccine. The COVID-19 regulations allowed that only vaccinated attendants are allowed entry as unvaccinated students did not have the possibility to attend.

UOM has sent out an email regarding a ceremony for unvaccinated students which will be held in December, telling students that they “may choose to be present for an occasion to be held in December 2021, wherein non-vaccinated graduates will be handed their certificate. Further details regarding the latter option, should you opt for this, shall be communicated at a later stage.”
