FlyFTI CEO for Malta’s biggest annual aviation conference
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.
