Car Park Malta Airport MLA / Parking Option Number 8

Since the island of Malta is very small and the number of tourists and vehicles on the roads is increasing year by year, parking is a problem. The top localities in Malta with the largest number of tourists where people have parking problems are: St Paul’s Bay, St Julian’s, Sliema, Birkirkara, Msid, Gzira, Most, Qormi and Marsaskala. In Gozo the parking shortage is most acute in Victoria and Zebbug. Nevertheless, there are many travellers who like to rent a car to explore the island. But they have to reckon with a long search for a parking space. To avoid all the stress, it is recommended to use public transport. Travelers and locals who want to leave their vehicles at Malta Airport (MLA) must also get to the terminal early to get a parking space, especially in high season. When all car parks at Luqa Malta Airport are full, you can park in the small car park P3 not far from the terminal building. This parking lot is used less often because not everyone knows it exists. Some features of the car park option number 8 here.
