Facilities for disabled persons

There are apparently no electric carts, which is no great surprise given the size of the airport. But wheelchairs and porters are available to take you from A to B. The wheelchairs have proper-sized rear wheels so you can propel yourself.

MIA has no air bridges, so if you have trouble with steps you’ll need to ask for the ambulift.

They do have a narrow wheelchair suitable for aircraft aisles, but be sure to tell them you need it when you check in.

Other facilities available include PRM Service Call-Points at the main car park entrance and outside the departure check-in hall, priority seating, low telephones and dedicated toilets in all areas of the building.

More information can be found on the airport’s accessibility page.

    All very well the airport having dedicated toilets for the disabled. But who wants to use them if they’re filthy?

    I went into the disabled toilets in the arrivals concourse and had to turn around and come straight back out again. Someone had left the toilet bowl in a dreadful state. The ladies’ toilet just next door was equally bad, though I was only actually able to see into one cubicle – the rest were occupied.

    Another thing to beware of is that after clearing security on departing Malta you have to take a lift up to get to the gates – but the lift up lands you right in the midst of a maze of duty-free stalls. It’s not like walking down a corridor with shops on either side, it’s much more like trying to get through the ground floor of a department store. Which means that you’ve got to contend with people wandering from stall to stall, browsing and probably too interested in what’s on the counters to be aware of PRMs trying to get through. And it must be particularly confusing for the blind or partially sighted.
