  • Malta airport and airshow information

    Hello guys,

    I'm planning already for next year and wanted to go to Malta next year. Looks like a nice destination for September with some bit of everything. From aviation to sea to history. And its not far from mid Europe with plane.

    Does someone has information if Airshow Malta will be planned 2022? I only found that it was last time in 2017 and then in 2021 (maybe due Covid?). Also someone has additional information for spotting at the airport itself? You can find many good photos from lots of guests there also a reason I want to go there.

    Thanks in advantage

    I have never been there but I suggest you look at the spotter guide for the Airport:

      Nice one this should give me some information for the spotting in general. Which looks good. But does someone has also information for the airshow? I could not find a map or a plan where the displays are or the shows? On videos you can see the shows are not at the airport but over water and sun seems to be in the back. So maybe in the north (Valetta city?).

      This would be nice. Of course I can also reach to the show and ask for dates etc but would like to have first hand information from fellow spotters

        This years show could well have been the last one. One reason being that there is now little space available. The area where this yearīs static display was is being built on and aircraft for the flying display are parked elsewhere, but not difficult to photograph from outside - as seen in the guide, spot #5. The flying display itself was this year held over water at St. Paulīs Bay. That was the first time held there and easy to get to by public transport. Other years it was held at Smart City, also over water - those are more than likely the ones you have seen.

        I donīt think it will do any good asking the organisers right now, they will not have any information to give out. We will just have to wait and see if anything is decided for or against.

        Iīm still sorting through this years photos, but some I put up on Insta. tonybradley5043

          The 2008 air display was also held over St Paul’s Bay. The reason given was that the construction cranes building the newLufthansa Technic maintenance facility posed a significant danger to a display over the airport. Several air shows since then were cancelled due to the Maltese government pulling their financial support and latterly due to Covid restrictions. The last airshow that I went to was 2016 which featured a Ukrainian IL-76 and a pair of Ukrainian SU-27’s
          We will have to wait and see if 2022 and beyond goes ahead.

            That's awful optimistic of you. By September 2022 Covid-35, Sigma Variant, will have killed us all.

              thanks for the explanations so far. I will wait but will have to plan my yearly vacation till the end of the year and I planned to stay at Malta for around 10 days so I can see arrivals/departures and enjoy also the landscape and country itself a bit
