The new Maltese airline established on 10 January 2018 and fully owned by the Maltese Government, will be operating a number of chartered flights to European destinations.

The airline has been preparing for its first flight by recruiting a number of pilots and cabin crew followed by additional training. The airline plans to continue recruitment of more crew over the coming weeks.

Malta MedAir has been operating since March 2018 on ACMI basis for Airmalta, however, as from today it is now starting to operate its flights with its own crew.

The company is currently in talks with prospective clients to operate a number of new chartered flights.
