Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects Ian Borg visited helicopter Leonardo AW109SP carrying serial number 22292, which has just been registered and certified by the Maltese aviation register, and which will be operated by Helicopter Services Malta Ltd. This is the fifth helicopter on the Maltese register, and three or more additional helicopters are expected to be certified in the coming months.

Minister Borg noted that the Maltese aviation register has become considerably stronger during these last years and has established itself as a strong and stable one in the world of aviation. In fact, by the end of 2018, the register held within it over 260 aeroplanes, a figure which doubled from the one in 2012 and 52 new aeroplanes were registered in 2017 only. The register includes a variety of aeroplanes, and Transport Malta was the first entity to register a Sukhoi Superjet 100 aeroplane in the European Union.

Malta has become a natural choice for several aeroplane owners, due to the dynamic style of the register, the solid laws, a number of fiscal incentives, and Malta’s state as a signatory of Cape Town, which offers a high level of security and peace of mind. The aviation industry in Malta today has the highest standards, with trained and specialised employees, and with time it is drawing more international operators to invest in it.

Borg said that this register is another source of pride and success for our country, and that we need to continue working in the most proactive and dedicated way for it to continue growing stronger and larger.
