Yes, bus X2 which runs every 30 minutes.

The journey takes about 45 minutes - get off at the "San Giljan" bus bus stop and walk along the route shown here http://goo.gl/maps/uoNXc .

The winter X bus timetables are here;

http://www.arriva.com.mt/x1-x2-x3-x4-x5-x7

It shows the last X2 bus from the airport at 22:50 and first at 05:50.

I believe the N81 night bus runs between St. Julians and the airport. In theory you could transfer to another night bus in St. Julians for travel to various other towns. St. Julans is the night time hub due to most of the nightclubs being there. I'm not sure N81 runs in winter though?

More winter timetables here;

Summer timetables are here in theory, but are being updated so not there for next summer yet.

Note the website where the timetables are held may change when the running of buses switches to the Maltese Government temporarily soon.

I found the N81 night bus timetable here;

http://www.arriva.com.mt/file.aspx?f=1358

Not sure if it's valid in winter. If not running be prepared to take a cab. There are fixed price taxis from the airport. Pay at the counter in the arrivals hall and give the voucher to the taxi driver.

Personally I would not risk using the N81 bus for travelling to/from the airport - it is designed mainly for getting clubbers back home from Paceville in the early hours of the morning and I suspect only calls at the airport because it is a good place to turn the bus round, rather than with any intention of picking anyone up there !

Also note that although it says that it runs on Fridays and Saturdays, this really means the early hours of Saturday morning and Sunday morning !

If you use bus X2, you need to get off at bus stop "Ross" which is located here: http://goo.gl/maps/lJ2CQ .

This is the second stop after the bus leaves the dual carriageway at St. Julians.

As Phil-the-bus said you can get off at Ross and you really cannot go wrong as the Portomaso Tower is visible from miles away . Take a look at the pictures on Google maps to get a feeling of the street view here https://maps.google.co.uk/maps…

Click on Satellite and then add Photos , if it shows up like Phils :-)
