Date: Wednesday, 16 April 2014
Air Malta will this afternoon surprise the islands with a freshly-painted aircraft to kick-start its 40th anniversary celebrations.
Air Malta registered aircraft 9H-AEI will be operating flight KM 40, appropriately selected for the occasion, and will be arriving in Malta after being repainted in Ostrava (Czech Republic). The aircraft was on a long-term lease to Interjet in Mexico
The aircraft will be performing two low flypasts on runway 31 and overfly the island before landing, at around 6pm.
It will fly over the Grand Harbour, Sliema, the northern coastline of Malta, Mosta, Qrendi and Birzebbugia.
Spotters are invited to upload photos of the aircraft onto Air Malta’s social media pages, particularly www.facebook.com/AirMalta and www.twitter.com/AirMalta.
The aircraft will be welcomed at Malta International Airport this evening during an event being hosted by Air Malta.
