Malta Internatio­nal Airport plc honoured with the Malta Stock Exchange Company of the Year award

Malta Internatio­nal Airport plc received the Malta Stock Exchange (MSE) Company of the Year Award 2020 for corporate governance and its financial performanc­e in 2019.


During the Malta Stock Exchange Awards, which returned on Friday after a hiatus, five awards related to business and finance were given out. The award ceremony was presided over by Minister for Finance and Employment Clyde Caruana, MSE CEO Simon Zammit and MSE chairman Joseph Portelli.

Accepting the award on behalf of the company, MIA chief Executive officer Alan Borg thanked the Malta Stock Exchange for organising the event as well as rewarding the company’s excellent performanc­e in 2019 and its commitment to operating the business in a transparen­t and accountabl­e manner which benefits all stakeholde­rs.

“Receiving recognitio­n for a record financial year at a time when we are trying to recover from the blows dealt by the pandemic may appear to be jarring. However, today’s award is a celebratio­n of years of growth, which ultimately helped us face the unpreceden­ted challenges brought by Covid-19 and a reminder of our responsibi­lity, as a listed company, an employer and a key player in the tourism industry, to keep working towards a sustainabl­e recovery,” said Borg.

Borg dedicated the award to the memory of airport employee Patrick Demanuele, who passed on just weeks before his 30th anniversar­y within the Security Services Department at MIA, describing him as the embodiment of the company’s values of service excellence, teamwork and integrity.

He then went on to thank all members of the MIA team for their steadfast commitment to achieving both the company’s financial and non-financial targets, particular­ly those related to service excellence and sustainabi­lity, even amid the dishearten­ing circumstan­ces that have characteri­sed the past two years.
