The Malta Aviation Registry has continued to achieve steady growth over the year of 2015. This is evidenced by the 61 aircrafts which have been registered with Transport Malta’s Aviation Registry during the same year.

2015 has also seen a total of 6 new operators being certified as well as a considerable increase in the number of pilot and engineer licenses being issued.

The Malta Aviation Register now totals a number of 213 aircrafts and 28 operators, which includes a Sukhoi Superjet 100, being the first ever model of its type to be registered in the European Union.

The success of the Malta Aviation Registry is sustained by fiscal incentives comprising of a low corporate tax structure as well as rebate on profits made. This was all made possible through the measures which have been undertaken by the Civil Aviation Directorate over the last year aimed at improving the level of service offered and the high standards required by the industry. These measures have been complimented with an investment in human resources which includes specialised personnel who are readily available, flexible and accessible.

The initiatives undertaken by the Civil Aviation Directorate guarantee the necessary knowhow and resources to ensure the highest possible service offered to the industry.
