The quaint marina town of Sliema is located 11 km away from Malta Airport, taking approximately 20 minutes by car or taxi.
You have three different transfer options to to choose from when travelling from Malta Airport to Sliema; taxi, private transfer or bus. A Malta Airport taxi or private transfer is by far the most convenient transport option as it takes only 20 minutes and costs a fixed fee of €20.
Taking the bus is a much cheaper option, however, the X2 that connects Sliema to the airport doesn’t stop at Sliema when travelling in this direction. Therefore, you’ll need to take two buses to get to Sliema, and whilst tickets are cheap, it could take you over an hour to get there.Welcome Pickups offers meet and greet services and a friendly introduction to Malta at the same price as a regular taxi.
