Two seaplanes land in Grand Harbour

Malta’s Grand Harbour welcomed two seaplanes which had started their voyage in Como, Italy. These seaplanes traveled some 3,000 kilometres to attend an event being organised in Malta, making a number of stops on the way in order to take on fuel.

This activity was organised by the Malta Seaplanes Association in order to re-kindle interest in this aviation niche. Association President Jonathan Galea told tvm.com.mt that talks are underway between the Maltese Association and its Como counterpart – the only one that trains pilots in this particular niche – for training to be given also in Malta.

Tourism Minister Edward Zammit Lewis said Government wants to continue to transform Malta into a more attractive jurisdiction for institutions wanting to finance aviation operations, and for the provision of training in sufficient skills for the demand in this sector.
