“The future seems bright for aviation in Malta as we are experiencing rapid growth and are expected to exceed 800 aircraft registered in our country by next year. Our various recent developments in this sector will have a significant impact on our economy and generate further jobs.”Aaron Farrugia, Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects
Eurowings Europe Ltd. Managing Director, Stefan Beveridge, said that they are delighted to have been granted an AOC for their new airline, Eurowings Europe Ltd. He added that this gives them a tailwind as they continue their pan-European growth.
