Malta has only one International Airport – the Malta International Airport (MLA), located in Luqa. However, the locality is sometimes labelled as Valletta (capital city) on some search engines – it is the same international airport. Book your flight to and from this airport, which offers a wide selection for international guests.
In Malta, public bus transport is generally well networked and will enable you to make your way around. More information available here.
There are direct buses from the airport to most locations in Malta, especially locations with high concentration of tourist accommodation, such as: Valletta (locality where the conference venue is located) – Bus X4
The conference venue, the University of Malta Valletta Campus (not to be mistaken with the Msida Campus!), is centrally located and can be reached by direct bus transfer from different localities as indicated here. More information here.
For those using smart phones connected to WIFI or mobile data, Tallinja app may be downloaded and consulted for real time information on the best routes and time schedules to arrive to a destination from any given location. The app is downloadable from here.
Bus tickets can be purchased on the bus itself – in which case it is strongly recommended to keep small change handy, e.g., €2 coins, €5 bill. The bus ticket prices range between €2 and €3 approximately, depending on route and time of journey. VISA card payments are also accepted.
For multiple journeys it is worthwhile considering purchase of block tickets or tallinja card. More information here.
Alternatively, taxis are also available from the airport and most locations, or by calling directly at the taxi companies’ offices, such as the one listed below:
- eCabs +356 2138 3838 – eCabs also provide service through app system.
- yellowcabs +356 2298 2222
Please consult the COST reimbursement regulations concerning taxi journeys.
All plenaries and main parallel sessions will be available on line. The MC members who will be not able to participate in person receive Zoom or TEAMS links.
