Avion Express established subsidiary airline in Malta
To strengthen its position in the market, Avion Express, an experienced narrow-body ACMI operator, established a subsidiary airline in Malta.
The latter company, which was named Avion Express Malta, was granted Maltese Air Operator’s Certificate and Air Operating License earlier this week. Alongside with 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. It will commence flying for Europe’s third largest airline Norwegian on May 20, 2019. The respective 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 position as a global ACMI provider on narrow-bodies.”
Avion Express is an experienced narrow-body ACMI operator successfully working with clients in Europe as well as Africa, Asia-Pacific, South America. In 2019 the airline will operate 22 Airbus A320 family aircraft. Avion Express was awarded ACMI Operator of the Year 2019 at Air Transport Awards by International Business News.
