The launch of the new airline was first announced back in October 2023, with Government stating that it would be closing Air Malta on 30th March 2024. The new era was marked with an inaugural flight to Catania, which took off early in the morning on 31st March 2024, and on the first day, KM Malta Airlines performed 42 flights.

Dr Giordimaina had joined Air Malta in 2005 as General Manager International Affairs, and she continued to occupy that position up until the move to KM Malta Airlines.

During her time with the airline, she had been tasked with responsibilities such as interpreting and applying current national, EU and international air transport legislation, to also evaluating forthcoming legislation affecting Air Malta. She was also responsible for the briefing and preparation of the airline for legislation and liaison with Government and other bodies, together with the formulation of company policy.

When Air Malta’s time came to an end, Dr Giordimaina had labelled the airline “Malta’s best brand ambassador for the past 50 years.”

Aside from her career at Air Malta and KM Malta Airlines, Dr Giordimaina is also a Visiting Lecturer and Examiner in Aviation Law at University of Malta (UM).

She holds a Doctor of Laws from UM as well as a Master of Laws in Maritime Law from International Maritime Law Institute.
