Air Malta appoints outstation managers

Following last year’s first phase of the reorganisation of its Outstation Offices Air Malta has announced the appointment of seven executives as outstation managers.
The reorganisation of the airline’s outstations is an integral part of the wider reorganisation currently underway within the airline and follows the Rescue Pact Agreement signed with the four Unions representing all employees two years ago.
The revised structure follows an in-depth look at the operations of the airline’s outstation offices and the continued changes in the marketing environment of foreign markets.
All the positions were filled internally after a call for applications was issued for Air Malta staff a few months ago. Alex Savona will be taking over the Paris office and has been appointed Country Manager - France while Edwin Caruana will be heading Air Malta’s Rome office and has been appointed Country Manager - Italy.
Ronald Cassar Giacomotto will be posted to Catania and has been appointed Outstation Manger - Catania while Ray Borg will be heading the airline’s London office after being appointed Country Manager UK & Ireland. Angelo Sciberras will assume the responsibility of Belgium and Holland and has been appointed Area Manger Belgium and Holland while Carmen Pace will be taking care of the Austrian market and has been appointed country Manger - Austria.
Anthony Dalli has been confirmed as country Manager - Libya for another year.
Commenting on these appointments, Air Malta’s Chief Executive Officer, Joe Cappello said, “The reorganisation of our stations is an integral part of business reengineering exercise. Foreign markets are continuously changing and we must change inline with market demands The restructuring of our offices is expected to yield a total of Lm800,000 in direct cost savings, Lm500,000 of which were yielded last year as a result of the first phase of the restructuring process. Apart for the benefits of cost reductions I am confident that with our new setup in these stations Air Malta will be in a better position to concentrate more on the two other important priorities we have set for the airline; revenue generation and become more customer centric in all the decisions we take.”
