Air Malta organised a press lunch last week to thank journalists and editors for their support and work throughout the year.
Editors or their representatives from almost every local media organisation attended the lunch which was held at The Palace in Sliema.
Before lunch, Air Malta aired a video outlining the airline’s news highlights from 2013, followed by the first viewing of its latest Air Malta promotional film: Awaken the Spirit of Christmas.
CEO Peter Davies said he thoroughly enjoyed working with members of the Maltese press throughout the past three years.
“The press has been very diligent in its scrutiny of Air Malta, ensuring that the restructuring plan is followed properly and the national airline moves towards profitability. We were not always given an easy time, but journalists and editors consistently demonstrated professionalism and sensitivity – and that makes a world of difference when you are trying to achieve something of this proportion,” Mr Davies said.
Mr Davies thanked all the news editors and journalists for their efforts throughout this year and added that he was confident that Air Malta would continue meeting and achieving further successes with its Restructuring Plan in the coming years.
