Air Malta reaches agreement with pilots

Air Malta has reached an agreement with the government and the Airline Pilots Association (Alpa) that will safeguard the interests of both pilots and the airline, said the parties in a joint statement.

Air Malta had requested an injunction to stop the union from ordering industrial action, while it was negotiating a potential strategic partnership with Alitalia.

The government, as the main shareholder of Air Malta, thanked the association for its cooperation and said this would help ascertain the commercial viability of the airline.
