Ryanair to establish new airline in Malta: 'Malta Air'

Post by tdh10 » 22 Jun 2019, 04:42

Interesting news, in particular, the involvement of the Maltese government. The government is the majority owner of ailing Air Malta which is not allowed further state subsidies under EU regulations. Slots have been outsourced to a newly established government-owned company and leased back to Air Malta a while ago.

Any more news articles on this new Ryanair company 'Malta Air'? What aircraft are they going to operate? What is Ryanair's strategy in buying or establishing a series of differently branded wholly-owned subsidiaries (Lauda, Buzz, Malta Air...)? What will this new company mean for Air Malta's future?
