Jet Aviation is pleased to announce that it has secured its air operator’s certificate (AOC) for Malta, thereby launching its new flight operation.

The Malta location joins the company’s other regional AOC operations in Zurich and Cologne. A Boeing BBJ 737-700 is already operating under the Malta AOC, with a Legacy 600 to follow in the coming weeks.

Managed by Jet Aviation and available for charter services, the long-range BBJ1 accommodates 19 passengers. The VIP-configured aircraft is based in Europe and has a range of 9,260 km (5,000 nautical miles), making it ideal for trips to Bahamas, Beijing, Mauritius or New York, among others.

“Our new flight operation in Malta is a terrific complement to our Swiss and German operations,” says Jürg Reuthinger, senior vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation’s aircraft management and charter operations in EMEA and Asia.

“The additional AOC in the European Union allows aircraft owners and operators more flexibility in their choice of registrations and operation. Charter customers, of course, greatly appreciate a wide range of aircraft to meet their varying jet transportation needs. The BBJ that’s available for charter is an excellent choice for worldwide business and leisure travel."
