LONDON, LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, June 8, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Newly launched business aviation fractional ownership brand, JetClub, has been awarded its Air Operator Certificate (AOC) by Transport Malta Civil Aviation Directorate and can now begin fractional and charter passenger flights.
JetClub CEO & Founder, Vishal Hiremath commented: “Over the past 12 months, we have been preparing to open JetClub in Europe. The most important part of this process is satisfying stringent safety standards of a commercial Air operating certificate (AOC). Receiving an AOC is a testament that we as an operator have met and exceeded the exceptionally high operating standards of the Maltese and EU Authorities. As meeting such high standards is extremely challenging, receiving an AOC is an important milestone for JetClub.”
Charles Pace, Director General for Civil Aviation at Transport Malta CAD added: “To obtain an AOC, an operator must meet high regulatory, safety and operational standards. Applicants go through a rigorous process and should be able to demonstrate that the operator will be able to carry out the safe operation of commercial aviation services. In JetClub’s case, the company meets Transport Malta and EASA standards and can now operate passenger flights. We welcome and are proud to have JetClub as part of the Maltese and European aviation, transport, and travel ecosystem”
The process to obtain an AOC is thorough and exhaustive. While issuing an AOC, the Transport Malta Civil Aviation Directorate looks for qualified, experienced personnel holding key positions in the company along with evidence of operational capability, safety standards, maintenance oversight, and proper documentation. Malta was selected by JetClub as the certifying authority because it is highly regarded as having stringent safety standards, a professional transport authority, and competent staff with an aviation-friendly environment.
