Transport Malta expands the Maltese Aviation sector from Geneva

Transport Malta is participating in one of the foremost aviation events on the European calendar, EBACE. Each year, the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition provides an excellent opportunity for Transport Malta to connect with the various players of the aviation industry. Its participation is part of the continuous commitment to build and consolidate the aviation industry in Malta.

TM and the Government are creating a veritable cluster of aviation services ranging from cargo operations, training, asset financing and the leasing sector. An expansion that has contributed greatly to Malta’s economy and is expected play a more major role in the near future.

EBACE is the annual meeting place for the European business aviation community, with over 400 exhibitors, 13,000 aviation professionals and over fifty of the latest business aircraft on display. It brings together thousands of business leaders, government officials, manufacturers, aviation personnel, lease companies and anyone remotely associated with aviation from Europe and around the world for three critical days in Switzerland.

The convention kicked off on Tuesday and will run until today at Geneva’s Palexpo. During this edition, business aviation leaders touted the innovation and investment driving the industry into the future, with advances in urban air mobility, sustainable flight and workforce development.

This week has been a very positive one for the aviation arm of Transport Malta, as the Authority has just signed on the airline Avion Express Malta as the 36th AOC holder and the British firm Britten Norman have agreed to establish a local base with a substantial investment. The latter are also going through the process to acquire Training Organisation Certificates from Transport Malta. All this while the Maltese aviation register is going from strength to strength with more than 315 aircraft on its books, with promising prospects of reaching the coveted 400 mark in the near future.

Transport Malta’s participation at EBACE will continue to improve Malta’s Aviation’s future prospects. In fact, at the convention, TM added a Bombardier Global 6000 to the Maltese registry. The aircraft managed by Tag Aviation Malta, is considered one of the best in its sector.

Tag Aviation Malta has been operating for the past two years and currently manages 10 aircraft, including 4 Bombardier Global aircraft, a Challenger 350 and a Falcon 7X. Tag provides luxurious travel with the latest aircraft. Florent Sériès, Vice President of TAG Aviation Europe, stated that, “We are very pleased with the continuous development of our Maltese AOC that is helped largely by the great relationship we have established with the Maltese Aviation authorities.”

Transport Malta will continue striving to achieve further successes across all sectors of the Aviation industry.
