Malta to invest €28m in ATC by 2019

MaltaMalta Air Traffic Services (MATS) is to invest €28 million in its facilities by 2019, according to The Times of Malta.

The investment is part of a commitment the company has with the European Union, the minister said.

Tourism Minister Edward Zammit Lewis said praised MATS for doubling its profit over the past three years while paying a €500,000 dividend into the Consolidated Fund, saying this was a “clear sign of the company’s sound management”.

MATS is working on an upgrade to its Air Traffic Management system, with plans to build a new air traffic control tower, replace the primary radar in Dingli, and introduce aeronautical message handling and automated dependent surveillance broadcasts. Lewis was speaking at MATS’ annual general meeting.
