During a press conference held in Lija, Transport Minister Aaron Farrugia announced that the Malta Aviation Register has grown by 500% in the last ten years, with 665 aircraft currently registered, and a number of other aircraft in the pipeline.

Whilst the pandemic has brought about a number of challenges to the aviation industry as a whole, the industrious Authority for Transport in Malta with respect to aviation, more commonly referred to as TM-CAD (Civil Aviation Directorate) has significantly contributed towards the country’s ability to turn this obstacle into an opportunity, so much so that between 2020 and the end of 2021 alone, there was a jump of circa 200 aircraft registrations. It goes without saying that this is also the merit of investors and advisors alike.

Farrugia stated that this addition in aircraft registrations is in itself a boost for the Maltese 9H register which is seen by many foreign operators as a hub to consolidate and expand their operations in Malta. He further pledged to continue fighting excessive bureaucracy and cutting red tape as much as possible in order to ensure that the Maltese structure continues to attract foreign investors by means of its efficient, timely and cost-effective product.
