Avion Express Malta set to start operations

Narrowbody ACMI operator Avion Express has established a subsidiary airline in Malta.

The new company, Avion Express Malta, was granted Maltese Air operator’s certificate and Air Operating License earlier this week.

Alongside its parent company, the Maltese airline will provide ACMI services to regular and charter airlines.

Avion Express Malta will start its operations with 1 Airbus A320 aircraft registered as 9H-AMA.

The ACMI contract was signed for European high season of 2019.

“Establishing a subsidiary company in Malta is a very important step for our company,” says Avion Express CEO Darius Kajokas. “The decision to expand our business to this region was influenced by the favourable and strategically beneficial conditions provided by Malta. Malta is an FAA-approved country which gives us access to the US market and opens a lot of opportunities to strengthen our leading position as a global ACMI provider on narrow-bodies.”

The airline will operate 22 Airbus A320 family aircraft.
