In view of the rise in Covid-19 cases both in Malta and in Europe, the Malta International Airshow is cancelled. Additionally, the decision to ban mass public gatherings by the Government of Malta has had a direct effect on the event. The Malta Aviation Society committee deems that the airshow falls squarely in this category and has thus stopped all preparations for this year's much-awaited event.
The Malta Aviation Society is presently waiting for a reply from the Malta Tourism Authority - the main sponsor of the event - to ascertain that the agreement for the 2020 airshow rolls on to 2021, so that preparations get underway for an airshow in 2021.
The Malta Aviation Society thanks all stakeholders for the support shown during the preparatory phase of this year's event.
