St Monica’s School Organises Educational Flight For Its Students

One hundred and forty students from St Monica’s School of Birkirkara were hosted on an hour long educational Air Malta flight. The flight saw the school fly at an altitude of 16,000 feet to Sicily and back with a flyby of Mount Etna. Many of the students had never boarded and travelled on a commercial aircraft.

Before the flight, the enthusiastic children were given brief talks on the formalities of the airport by both Air Malta and Malta International Airport personnel. Upon arrival the children were taken to the airline’s Engineering hangar to visit Air Malta’s latest Nickelodeon themed Airbus A320neo aircraft. There, they met by one of the airline’s Engineers who explained to them some technical features of the aircraft.

The visit was organised by the school together with Air Malta’s Capt. Mark Micallef and the airline’s Charter flights section. It was made possible with the assistance given by the teachers and guardians of St Monica School who also accompanied the children, Malta International Airport including its Fire and Rescue Section and the Malta Air Traffic Services Ltd.

Every year many local schools take the opportunity to organise similar educational flights on Air Malta for their students.
