Air Malta today issued a local and international call for applications for a "dynamic and an experienced leader" to join its team in the role of Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

The last CEO, Clifford Chetcuti, submitted his resignation from the airline on 7 August. The move came after a stand-off between the airline and its pilots. The economy ministry had said that Chetcuti cited personal reasons for his resignation.

Whilst working closely with the Board of Directors, the new CEO will be expected to manage the growth and performance of Air Malta, develop and implement a global strategy, and assume the responsibility for all strategic and commercial aspects of the company.


The new CEO will be responsible for the viability, growth, and sustainability of the organisation whilst promoting and supporting a stable, harmonious, and productive working environment for all, the airline said.

"To thrive as a CEO, she/he is expected to be a judicious manager and an inspiring leader. Management experience is an utmost asset, as well as a proven track record of effective team management and a results-driven leadership. The selected candidate is expected to have business acumen with the ability to be agile and adapt to challenges and new developments in the aviation industry. The ultimate aim of the role of the CEO will be to strengthen the airline in its stance to explore new revenue streams, adopt new emerging technologies that shall enhance operations together with customer experience and guide the Airline towards long-term success. Applications, including a covering letter, should be sent by email to [email protected] Applications close on Friday 2nd October 2020."
