Arriving In Malta

When you have touched down at the airport there are plenty of bus services available which can take you around Malta, although you may prefer to hop in a taxi instead. The country itself is served by a decent network of public buses which can make it easy to get around, while you will find plenty of car rental agencies at Malta airport if you would rather have your own vehicle. Inside the airport you will find a decent range of amenities including a few places to eat and drink, duty-free and retail shopping alongside additional luxuries such as children’s play areas, a couple of airport lounges and free Wi-Fi.
