Travel giant Ryanair is setting up a new airline based in Malta. This comes after government involvement in this new venture as more aircraft and maintenance facilities are planned.
The new airline will incorporate 61 Ryanair routes to and from the island.
The Irish carrier has also committed to double its fleet in Malta to 10 planes, and plans to grow them further in the future.
As a result of this venture, a number of planes in Ryanair’s fleet will be registered on the Maltese aviation register.
Ryanair will also be setting up hangar facilities for repair and maintenance operations in Malta.
The new airline will be called Malta Air and is expected to employ around 350 people within the next three years.
