Flexjet Europe opens operations center in Malta

By Doug Gollan, July 21, 2021

As Flexjet continues to expand in Europe, it has secured an air operators certificate from Malta and opened an operations center in the Mediterranean nation

Flexjet has opened an operations center in Malta while earning an air operators certificate – AOC – from the European nation. It comes as it adds an Embraer Legacy 500 under the new registration.

The Malta Operational Centre, situated in Sliema, complements Flexjet’s existing European headquarters in London’s Mayfair; Tactical Control Centre in St Albans, UK; and its aircraft maintenance facility based in Milan, Italy.

In addition to the midsize Legacy 500, the fractional share and jet card provider operates Embraer Praetor 600 super-midsize jets.

“Flexjet Owners are flying an increasing variety of routes within Europe and beyond, and our Maltese AOC allows us more reach and additional operational flexibility,” says Marine Eugene, managing director.

She adds, “We enjoyed working closely in partnership with Transport Malta’s Civil Aviation Directorate, who share our commitment to the highest standards of safety and compliance. I am also delighted to establish our new regional Operational Centre within the professional Maltese aviation community, which will undoubtedly prove an important asset as we continue to grow Flexjet throughout Europe.”

Charles Pace, Director General, Civil Aviation Directorate Transport Malta (TM-CAD) adds, “We are proud to have an operator of Flexjet’s caliber join our aviation community in Malta. Granting an AOC requires a rigorous evaluation of ownership and control, operational capability, safety standards, maintenance, and documentation.”

Part of Directional Aviation’s OneSky Flight, in addition to Flexjet, the group includes U.K.-based helicopter operator Halo Aviation and charter and jet card broker PrivateFly.

After launching its European fractional program last year, it added a jet card offer earlier this year.
