Air Malta

National carrier Air Malta and Vienna Airport are celebrating 45 years since the airline’s first flight to the Austrian capital.

In April 1977, Air Malta operated a Douglas DC-9 aircraft with flight number KM132 for the first time to Vienna. Over the years, the route has grown substantially, and Malta’s national airline currently flies to Vienna up to seven times per week.

Walter Fehsler, Sales Manager (Austria) at Air Malta, Corinna Ziegler, Director of the Malta Tourism Authority (MTA) and Julian Jäger, Joint CEO and COO of Vienna Airport, marked this occasion with a photo opportunity.

“Merhba Air Malta! The airline has been flying to Vienna for 45 years, thus creating an important link from Austria to Malta, especially for outgoing tourism,” Mr Jäger said.

“I got to know the beauty of this Mediterranean island for close to five years in my capacity as CEO of Malta International Airport (MIA), and I can confirm from my own personal experience that this island is always worth a visit,” he continued.

Mr Jäger served as CEO and CCO of MIA between 2007 and 2011, before joining Vienna International Airport as Joint CEO and COO. Prior to joining MIA, Mr Jäger served as Head of Business Development at Vienna International Airport for over two years.

“We are thrilled to be able to celebrate this success today. Vienna represents one of the very first routes which the airline decided to serve after its founding and passenger traffic on this route has continuously grown through the years,” Alan Tune, Head of Revenue Management and Global Sales at Air Malta said.

“During this time, we have transported a total of 1.5 million passengers on the route, and we would like to thank our partners who collaborated with us all these years for their outstanding cooperation and support,” he concluded.
