Avion Express Malta has reached another landmark in its development – the company obtained the Part 129 Operation Specification approval, issued by Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), to conduct passenger flights to and from the United States.
The Maltese company will now be able to make wet-lease agreements with companies throughout the North America.
In order to attain the approval, Avion Express Malta had to pass various checks and procedures of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Department of Transportation (DOT) and Transportation Security Administration (TSA) of the United States. The whole approval process took more than half a year.
“Obtaining a Part 129 Ops Specs approval from the FAA serves as one of the most important achievements for Avion Express Malta. In November 2019 the company landed a Foreign Air Carrier Certificate from Transport Canada. We are discussing business opportunities in both of these markets with our potential clients,” said Darius Kajokas, CEO of Avion Express Malta.
With the first signs of the aviation industry recovery turning up, as some of the travel bans are being relaxed, borders reopened and flights resumed, Avion Express Malta is ready to help airlines and businesses to cover their air transport capacity needs.
