Air Charter Scotland awarded Maltese AOC


Air Charter Scotland has expanded its operations into Europe after being granted an Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) by the Transport Malta Civil Aviation Directorate. The AOC issued to new sister company, Air Charter Scotland Europe Ltd (AOC number MT-63), is the culmination of several months of planning, and means the company can continue its expansion into EU territories.

Derek Thomson, Accountable Manager, Air Charter Scotland Europe Ltd, said: “The presentation of our Maltese AOC marks a significant step in our ability to grow our managed fleet of corporate private jets. It further enhances our ability to provide the highest level of responsiveness and customer service standards.

We appreciate it is an uncertain time in aviation but we see this new venture as a very positive step in our future and look forward to continuing to exceed our customers’ expectations and to contribute toward the development of business aviation.”

Air Charter Scotland Europe Ltd has already sourced its first aircraft, a Challenger CL-350, with more to be added before the end of this year.

Meanwhile, the Air Charter Scotland team have reported an increased surge of enquiries during the Covid-19 outbreak compared with the same period last year, it says, due to the lack of available airline flights and clients seeking safer ways to travel.
