Over Half A Million Airport Movements In November 2023
Dec 12 2023 Share

In November, Malta International Airport experienced a notable surge in passenger movements, recording 528,923 travellers, marking a substantial 7.2% rise compared to the figures observed in 2019. 

The zenith of November’s air traffic occurred during the mid-term school holidays, where a remarkable 25,000 passengers transited through the airport in a single day.

This upswing was underscored by robust demand, reflecting in a commendable seat load factor (SLF) of nearly 85%, surpassing the 2019 levels by 6.8%. Italy, the United Kingdom, and Germany maintained their dominance on the airport’s market leaderboard. 

Conversely, France ceded its position to Poland, marking a resurgent presence among the top five contributors to passenger traffic after a seven-month hiatus.

The Polish market demonstrated significant traction, with 92% of available seats on flights between seven Polish destinations and Malta being occupied, signifying a robust demand for travel to this region. 

This heightened SLF, coupled with increased flight frequency, propelled a remarkable 120% surge in passenger traffic between Malta and Poland compared to 2019.

Despite Germany’s traffic not fully recovering to 2019 levels, its November SLF of 90% indicated a strong resurgence in demand for air travel.

51 years ago humans made their final visit to the moon

51 years ago humans made their final visit to the moon
Dec 11 2023 Share

Today, December 11, 2023, marks a significant milestone in space exploration history, as it has been precisely 51 years since humans last set foot on the moon.

On this day in 1972, the Apollo 17 mission concluded, marking the sixth and final lunar landing of NASA’s Apollo program. The historic voyage left an indelible mark on the annals of space exploration, bringing a temporary halt to human lunar exploration.

Apollo 17 was the culmination of a remarkable era of space exploration that began with the iconic Apollo 11 mission in 1969, where humans first landed on the moon. Launched on December 7, 1972, with astronauts Eugene Cernan, Harrison Schmitt, and Ronald Evans aboard, Apollo 17 aimed to push the boundaries of scientific discovery and lunar exploration.

Apollo 17 stands out not only for being the last lunar mission but also for the scientific accomplishments it achieved. The astronauts conducted extensive geological surveys, collecting rock and soil samples that provided valuable insights into the moon’s composition and history. The mission also deployed the Lunar Roving Vehicle, allowing astronauts to explore larger areas of the lunar surface.

On December 11, 1972, Eugene Cernan, the mission commander, became the last human to leave footprints on the lunar soil. His words, “We leave as we came, and, God willing, as we shall return, with peace and hope for all mankind,” echoed the bittersweet reality of the concluding chapter of human lunar exploration.
