MTA Reports Collective Accommodation Rise

Malta Tourism Authority (MTA) has reacted positively to data reporting that increases have been registered concerning the amount of tourists visiting collective accommodation establishments during the fourth quarter (Q4) 2017.

In 2017, total guests surpassed 1.8 million, marking a 13 percent increase and total nights spent reached nearly 9.6 million, an increase of almost seven percent over 2016.

Figures published by the country’s National Statistics Office indicate that between October and December 2017, total guest increases were registered at 11.7 percent and total nights spent at collective accommodation establishments was at 8.3 percent.

“It is clear by now that hurdles such as seasonality are being addressed,” said Paul Bugeja, CEO, MTA. “[Due to] joint efforts between the Ministry for Tourism and MTA, Malta is successfully being promoted and visited all-year-round, which is positive for the industry, the economy, and ultimately the taxpayer.”
