Statistieke wat deur die Nasionale Statistiekkantoor van Malta vir inkomende toerisme vir 2018 bekend gemaak is, toon dat Malta se gewildheid in die Noord-Amerikaanse mark steeds sterk is.

Die ag. Konrad Mizzi, minister van toerisme vir Malta, het opgemerk dat die VSA een van die snelste groeiende toerismemarkte vir Malta was, met 'n dramatiese toename van 31.9% van 2017 tot 2018, met 'n totaal van 47,170 2018 Amerikaners. Die toename vanaf 6.6 in Kanada was 15,015% (2018 62,185 Kanadese) wat die totale aankomelinge in 2.6 vanaf Noord-Amerika (VS en Kanada) tot 'n rekord van 14.3 2017 gebring het. Hierdie sonnige eilandgroep in die Middellandse See het altesaam 2018 miljoen besoekers (+ XNUMX% tussen XNUMX en XNUMX) aangeteken, wat 'n rekordgetal toeriste na Malta van regoor die wêreld gebring het.

Malta is turning into one of the Mediterranean’s top all season destinations due to its success in developing a multitude of off-peak events, and mild year round warm, sunny climate. According to Michelle Buttigieg, MTA Representative for North America, “although the dramatic increase in 2018 is due in large part to the yearlong celebrations of Malta’s Capital, Valletta, as the 2018 European capital of Culture, Malta also has a rich and diverse annual calendar of festivals and events that continue to attract visitors for the off-season.”

Buttigieg continued, “if the overwhelming number of people stopping at the Malta Booth last month at the January 2019 New York Times Travel Show is any indication, this market will continue to boom.” The MTA is very proactive in North America, both with travel industry organizations such as the United States Tour Operators Association (USTOA), and Virtuoso, a network of luxury travel agents.

Buttigieg further stated, “MTA has also garnered major publicity in the US and Canada because of its proactive work with prominent journalists and social media influencers.” Buttigieg added, “an important part of Malta’s appeal to the North American traveler is that English is an official language, and that Malta is a safe, peaceful, and stable EU democracy.”
