Maltese Expansion


Wizz is not the first carrier to expand in to having a Maltese division alongside their other subsidiaries and main airline. Ryanair set up Air Malta, a collaboration between Ryanair and the Maltese Government in June 2019.

Wizz Air Malta is at the cusp of an exciting journey and the establishment of this new subsidiary will help to reinforce Wizz Air’s strong position and support its ambitious expansion plans in Europe.
