Airport Malta Car Park MLA / Parking Option Number 9

Although Malta Luqa Airport is comparatively small, thousands of holidaymakers reach this island in most cases  by plane and only a small number by ferry from Sicily. Residents of the islands of Malta and Gozo are the ones who most often park their cars at the airport in Malta when leaving the island by plane. Many of them try to park their cars for free on the streets of Gudja and Luqa, near the airport, angering the residents of these two small towns. The restriction on parking in Gudja and Luqa is seen as necessary to reduce or even completely ban the number of parkers who fly abroad for several days or weeks. To avoid frustrating Gudja-residents and damaging of your cars, we do not recommend parking on the streets in Gudja and Luqa. The best way to get to Malta Airport is to use public transport or park in a car park belonging to the airport. One more car park option number 9, that we would like to describe here, is the McDonald's car park next to the MLA terminal.
