The Maltese national carrier is at a very important juncture in its path. The COVID-19 pandemic has decimated its client base. Long gone are the plans for a 14-aircraft fleet and today the active number of aircraft hovers between 2 and 3. Executive chairman Charles Mangion depicted a gloomy picture, although he reiterated the airline’s commitment to be fully ready when the upturn returns. MAviO Deputy News Editor Riccardo Flask caught up with Charles Mangion at his Level 2 office with questions focusing on the present feud with ALPA, the A321XLR and the company’s long-term plans.
