Wizz Air to form new Malta-based airline to support European expansion

Wizz Air, the Hungary-based low-cost airline, has announced that based on the ‘Arrangement on Reallocation of Responsibility’ document signed between the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the Malta Civil Aviation Directorate (CAD), it intends to file an application for its Maltese subsidiary to be granted an Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) with EASA and an Operating Licence (OL) with CAD.

Subject to confirmation of its AOC and OL from the EASA and CAD, Wizz Air Malta may begin operations in October 2022 with Malta-registered aircraft.

Wizz Air Chief Executive Officer, József Váradi said:

“We are pleased to announce our intention to establish a new airline subsidiary in Malta. Wizz Air is constantly evaluating the structure of its business and exploring options to establish new AOC’s and bases in Europe and beyond. The successful establishment of Wizz Air Malta later this year will help to reinforce our strong position and support our expansion plans in Europe. We look forward to working with EASA and the Maltese CAA to take this application forward.”
