The 300th

A few days ago, Transport Malta registered the 300th active aircraft on 9H, the Maltese Aviation Registry

The registry has been growing steadfastly over the last few years, effectively doubling in size over a relatively short period of time, merely five years.  During the same period, from just 18 Air Operator Certificate holders, Malta can now boast an impressive total of 35.

The 300th aircraft – an Airbus A318 owned by Universal Entertainment Corporation

The 300th aircraft is an Airbus A318, owned by the Japanese Universal Entertainment Corporation and is operated by Comlux.  The latter hosted an event to celebrate the registration with Minister Ian Borg and TM officials in attendance.

Comlux was the first international aviation setup to obtain a Maltese licence and has since registered and operated numerous aircraft on the Maltese Registry. It has now been joined by another 34 firms, that together make up the 300 and counting Maltese-registered-aircraft.
