Air Malta welcomes third A320neo to its fleet

Air Malta is set to welcome a third brand new Airbus A320neo to its fleet.

The aircraft has been registered on the Maltese aircraft register as 9H-NEC and was flown directly from the Airbus’ facility in Hamburg.

The aircraft entered immediately into service last Thursday with flight KM 328/9 to Frankfurt.

Air Malta chairman Charles Mangion said: “This aircraft is a welcome addition and another important step forward to continue reducing ourfleet’s average age and improve aspects of customer experience, environmental commitment and airline reliability and efficiency. Itshows commitment to Air Malta’s growth strategy and a big investment in the airline.”

Minister for Tourism Konrad Mizzi added: “Air Malta is undergoing a transformation process which includes the shift to brand-new state-of- the-art Airbus Neo aircraft, growing a route network that now includes over 40 destinations and improving its inflight services in both economy and business class.

“The Maltese Government is committed to support the growth strategy adopted by Air Malta and the investment in the airline in the months and years to come.”

Last year Air Malta embarked on a five-year fleet replacement project that will see the airline operate a brand-new Airbus A320neo fleet by the year 2022.

The next batch of aircraft are expected to join the airline’s fleet next year.
