Improved food court landing at Malta International Airport in 2022
- Five new eateries together with a new bar will be introduced
- Burger King & KFC still open to the public, and will remain part of the new set-up
- Reimagined aesthetic will ensure ambiance complements food offering for an elevated experience
Malta International Airport has set into motion an exciting project which will see the complete overhaul of the food court on Level -1 by 2022 with an investment to the tune of €2 million.
The new and improved food court will provide a much wider and more international food offering catering to different tastes through the introduction of five new eateries featuring some of the island’s favourite homegrown brands and a restaurant.
The five eateries will introduce a street-food concept at Malta International Airport and, together with popular franchises Burger King and KFC, will be geared at guests looking to grab a quick bite before proceeding with their journey. Patrons having more time, on the other hand, can properly savour the experience at the new restaurant and bar on the upper level.
“Guest feedback has consistently shown us that the food offering contributes greatly to an elevated airport experience. With this in mind as well as the fact that, over the years, the airport has become a popular dining destination in the south of Malta, the company decided to embark on the food court project at a strategic time when there is pent-up demand for out-of-door experiences and travel is gradually picking up,” said MIA’s Head of Retail and Property Mr George Mallia.
A reimagined aesthetic created through the use of large lighting features, rich materials, plush seating, and touches of greenery will ensure that the ambiance of the area complements the upgraded food offering.
The food court’s extended footprint together with a mezzanine on the ground floor will allow for an increase in capacity totalling 324 seats as well as the introduction of several seating options suited to different group sizes and needs.
While works on the project are currently underway, the Burger King and KFC outlets are still open to guests from Monday to Sunday from morning until late. Malta International Airport is currently offering two hours of free parking to all guests.
