Traffic Connections in Malta

Malta is just a few hours' flying time from most mainland European cities and has excellent intercontinental connections.

Sailing in Malta - Traffic Connection

Travelling by plane:

The national airline, Air Malta, operates flights to and from all the major airports in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

Malta International Airport is located between the villages of Luqa and Gudja, 10 kms from Valletta. For information on arrivals and departures see www.maltairport.com or use e-mail contact: mia@maltairport.com.

Travelling by ship:

The Islands are included in several cruise itineraries and provide an excellent base or stop-over for sailing. You can also get here on a scheduled ferry direct from several Mediterranean ports.

A regular ferry and catamaran service links several Italian and Sicilian ports to Valletta, Malta's capital city. Several shipping lines serve some Mediterranean ports as well.

In Malta, driving is on the left side. There are speed limits of 80 km/h on the open road and 50 km/h in settlements. Comprehensive insurance is advisable. National or international driving licences are accepted.

Useful Tip: Always lock your car when parking. Do not leave luggage and valuables visible inside parked vehicles.


The white taxi service has the privilege of picking up passengers from anywhere, except bus-stops. Taxi services from the Malta International Airport to all localities in Malta are based on a fixed tariff. Find more information on taxi rates on the Malta Transport Authority website.

Useful Tip: Inquire and agree on a fare before you enter a taxi.

Public transport:

The public transport service on Malta and Gozo is a good way to get around - and you get to see the Islands too.

Public transport is efficient and reasonably priced. The main bus terminus is in Valletta, just outside the City Gate. Malta buses are orange and show the route number on the front. Malta bus routes leave from and go to Valletta. A few do operate circular routes, but this is not the norm - an express bus service links the principal resorts with Sliema, Marsaxlokk, Mdina, the Three Cities and the main sandy beaches. All buses to Valletta pass through its suburb town, Floriana. In towns and villages, the bus terminus is generally found on or near the main square.

The average length of a bus trip in Malta is 20 to 30 minutes.

For traveling on Island Gozo by public transport you have to board a bus to Cirkewwa, go as a foot passenger on the ferry, and take a Gozo bus to the capital Victoria.

Buses in Gozo are grey with a central red band and show the route number on the front. Unlike in Malta, Gozo buses operate along circular routes, leaving from and returning to Victoria without scheduled stops at termini.

For more details visit the Malta Transport Authority website (www.maltatransport.com).

Useful Tip: Whenever you use public transport see that you pay the correct fare. Keep small change available.

Seaplane service Malta - Gozo:

Harbour Air operates daily Scheduled Seaplane service between the islands of Malta and Gozo. Flights take approximately 20 minutes and depart from the Valletta Sea Passenger Terminal to Gozo's Mgarr Harbour and vice versa.
