After three long years, aviation enthusiasts can rejoice once again as the Malta International Airshow announced that it will be returning on 25th and 26th September.

This year’s events will be spread over two different locations, with the air display taking place along the Qawra coast and the static display taking place at Park 4 at the Malta International Airport.

The airplanes on display, originating from eight different countries, will be temporarily housed at the SR Technics hangar.

Joe Ciliberti, President of the Malta Aviation Society, said that the setting up of this year’s edition of the Airshow came with its fair share of challenges – and it’s all thanks to the pandemic.

COVID-19 severed many of the Malta Aviation Society’s contacts with its foreign counterparts, so much so that it practically had to start planning this highly-anticipated event from scratch.

But despite these issues, it seems like the Malta Aviation Society’s ready to restore the Airshow back to its former glory!

And it won’t be doing so by itself…

Given that such an activity helps generate interest in the aviation sector, Parliamentary Secrety for Citizenship Alex Muscat announced that the Community Malta Agency will be donating a whopping €50,000 to help the event resume. Neat!
