Frontier Services Group Limited yesterday announced the establishment of Phoenix Aviation Malta Limited (“PAM”). . Based on the Mediterranean island of Malta, PAM will offer specialty passenger and cargo flight services to the company’s growing list of clients active across North Africa.
FSG will reposition two of its aircraft to Malta by the end of November 2014 to support a recent contract award and to meet the emergent requirements of other clients.
Commenting on PAM’s founding, Erik Prince, Chairman of Frontier Services Group, said, “ we are excited about the formation of Phoenix Malta as we continue to expand our foot print in support of our clients’ needs, and the growth opportunities that this creates will be significant.”
Mr. Prince continued: “PAM also represents the next logical step in the further development of FSG’s strategic vision to bring trusted and reliable air services to the entire African continent.”
Gregg Smith, FSG’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “With two aircraft pre-positioned in Malta, we are now able to cover all of North Africa and most of West Africa, both important regions for our key clients. We expect that our new ability to operate freely in EU jurisdictions will also appeal to our multinational clients.”
