Doubling Tourism by 2030
Malta is currently doubling the size of its airport to achieve its objectives of generating 6 million tourists annually. Ryanair has signed a contract to base about 60 planes in Malta whilst we have signed agreements with Emirates and Qatar to fly to Malta opening its borders to new regions. Aso being next to Africa to become a hub for interconnecting flights to Africa from other continents and we are also introducing direct flights to the US in 2021. We are also a hub for filming due to our natural beauty and a US-based film company have committed 500 million dollars to such projects. We are also trying to diversify into sports tourism to improve occupancy rates from seasonal to year long.
