Air Malta to Participate in The AirX Malta International Airshow
07 September 2013
For the second year running Air Malta will take an active part in the AirX Malta International Airshow. The national airline will participate with an Airbus A320 aircraft during the flying display programme on Sunday 29th. The show, now in its 21st edition, will be held on the 28th/29th September at Malta International Airport.
Last year, on the first day of the airshow, Air Malta took the opportunity and showcased its brand new aircraft livery. The livery was greeted with great enthusiasm and given a warm welcome by the airshow visitors. On the second day a historic flypass by the airline’s Airbus A320 aircraft in the new livery with a historic aircraft icon, the Spitfire, brought a fitting end to last year's edition. The fresh new look of Air Malta and the flypass were one of the highlights of that event.
Held annually in September, the Malta International Air Show is one of Malta's largest outdoor family events. The event, organised by the Malta Aviation Society attracts huge crowds of Maltese and foreigners interested in aviation.
Over the years, the air show has attracted many interesting aircraft including F-14s, F-15s, F-16s, F-18s, the L-39, A-4 Skyhawks, Tornados, the B-52, the Spitfire and the Hurricane. The air show has also hosted national display teams including the Red Arrows, Patrouille de France, Frecce Tricolori, the Spanish team Patruila Aguoila, the Swiss PC-7 Team, the Breitling Jet Team, and many other types of aircraft from all over the world.
