The Civil Aviation Directorate within Transport Malta strongly denies reports that Libyan airlines will fly to Malta

The Civil Aviation Directorate within Transport Malta refers to differing reports appearing in various sections of the media both locally and abroad alleging that Libyan airlines will somehow manage to fly to Malta notwithstanding EU restrictions. Transport Malta, as the regulator of aviation industry in Malta, strongly rebuts such false reports.

At present, all Libyan carriers are banned from entering the EU on any commercial flights, irrespective whether these are scheduled or chartered. Special dispensations are only given by Euro-Control and Member states for Libyan aircraft flown to and from maintenance facilities in Europe without any passen-gers on board. Italy, Greece and Malta have additional restrictions on flights to and from Libya even when such flights are operated by non Libyan carriers. In fact, any flight departing Libya is prohibited from entering the Italian or Greek airspace.

Thus, any news claiming that Afriqiyah Airlines will be operating to Malta is not correct. It should also be noted that the air service agreement signed between Malta and Libya does not give Afriqiyah any rights between Malta and Libya.

Transport Malta would also like to point out that AEROvista does not hold an EU license to operate within Europe and does not have any base or an AOC issued by Malta or any other member state. Once again reports that an operator has found a “loop hole” to operate to Malta are not correct. Malta is a full member of EASA and the EU and follow the standards and regulations as applied in all other member states.
