The aviation sector in Malta has a “great potential”¸ tourism minister Karmenu Vella said. Because of its growing importance¸ the government is planning to set up a Civil aviation Authority which will work on a National aviation Policy. The objective remains that of creating the right environment to foster growth and further investment in the sector

The aviation sector in Malta dates back to second decade of last century. Malta’s geographical position made it possible for the Islands to develop the aviation industry at that time. Malta was a British colony and as expected the first aircraft operating were military. Civil aircraft appeared later during the 1920s. (Click here to read more about the aviation in Malta).

The aviation policy is necessary to empower government and aid the private sector to exploit opportunities such as aircraft registration¸ pilots’ training and ground handling.  Minister Vella mentioned also the idea of turning Malta into an aviation hub on the lines of the Malta Freeport.
