The Malta Business Weekly - - NEWS -

The Malta Avi­a­tion Out­look brings to­gether key stake­hold­ers in the lo­cal avi­a­tion in­dus­try to ex­change valu­able in­sights and strengthen the nexus be­tween govern­ment and the avi­a­tion in­dus­try.

Tak­ing place ev­ery year, MAviO has es­tab­lished it­self as the de­fin­i­tive Mal­tese avi­a­tion con­fer­ence that of­fers a unique plat­form for the lo­cal in­dus­try play­ers to en­gage govern­ment of­fi­cials in an ex­change of ideas to ad­vance the strate­gic in­ter­ests of the avi­a­tion sec­tor.

More than 120 at­ten­dees from over 45 dif­fer­ent com­pa­nies and en­ti­ties at­tended MAviO 2018, in­clud­ing over 80 top govern­ment rep­re­sen­ta­tives, se­nior ex­ec­u­tives, avi­a­tion author­ity and man­age­ment pi­lots.

Pro­pel­ling MAviO as a fo­rum that shapes the fu­ture of the Mal­tese avi­a­tion in­dus­try, is the dy­namic part­ner­ship be­tween the in­dus­try and the avi­a­tion au­thor­i­ties. Some of the es­teemed speak­ers at past con­fer­ences in­clude the CEO of Dornier Seaw­ings Peter Hermle, se­nior Avi­a­tion an­a­lyst at CAPA Richard Maslen, Ryanair Malta Base cap­tain Nor­man D’Amato and Orange Travel Group man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Martin De­gior­gio, among oth­ers.

To be held on 6 May 2019 the theme for MAviO 2019 is Pa­per air­lines and ACMI op­er­a­tors. The con­fer­ence will fo­cus on new ideas and emerg­ing tech­nolo­gies while pre­sent­ing new chal­lenges for the sec­tor and pro­vid­ing new op­por­tu­ni­ties and en­ablers to fur­ther drive the suc­cess of the Mal­tese avi­a­tion scene.

MAviO 2019 will in­clude keynote speeches from the Min­is­ter for Trans­port, In­fra­struc­ture and Cap­i­tal Projects Dr Ian Borg, as well as a panel dis­cus­sion that will ex­am­ine new de­vel­op­ments in the pa­per air­line in­dus­try, blockchain tech­nol­ogy and the role reg­u­la­tory frame­works play in sup­port­ing these in­no­va­tions and al­low­ing the in­dus­try to de­liver its full po­ten­tial in a sus­tain­able man­ner.

Among the speak­ers MAviO is proud to have re­cruited the CEO of flyFTI Di­et­mar Gunz and ex-Air Malta CEO Joseph Galea who will be delv­ing into this of­ten over­looked sub­ject.

Mar­vic Bugeja, CEO of MAviO said: “Avi­a­tion is a linch­pin of the global econ­omy, con­nect­ing peo­ple, busi­nesses and ideas from all over the world. While growth in the sec­tor re­mains strong, it also brings with it in­creased com­plex­i­ties and chal­lenges. Through MAviO we can catal­yse crit­i­cal con­ver­sa­tions among movers and shak­ers in Mal­tese avi­a­tion to shape the fu­ture land­scape and sus­tain­abil­ity of this in­dus­try which is of crit­i­cal im­por­tance to an is­land like ours.”

MAviO is or­gan­ised on a vol­un­tary ba­sis by a team led by Bugeja, deputy CEO Ric­cardo Flask, di­rec­tor Dr Francesca Galea, di­rec­tor Awards Joanne Calleja, Pol­icy co­or­di­na­tor Cap­tain Sin­clair Portelli and PR & Com­mu­ni­ca­tions ex­ec­u­tive head Louise Vella.
