Wizz Air Malta has been granted an Air Operator Certificate (AOC) by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and an Operating Licence (OL) by the Malta Civil Aviation Directorate (CAD).
Wizz Air Malta commenced operations on September 27, 2022, with the first flight taking off from Rome Fiumicino International Airport. The new Wizz Air subsidiary will be based in Malta with postholder roles, and the management team present on-site. Wizz Air recently appointed Diarmuid Ó Conghaile as the Managing Director of Wizz Air Malta, who will take up the position in Valetta from November 1, 2022.
Wizz Air already operates multiple AOCs within its business, including Wizz Air UK and Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, alongside Wizz Air Hungary. The establishment of Wizz Air Malta will allow the group to further diversify its operations, providing enhanced flexibility and the potential for significant expansion.
