Operated by HeliFly Limited, the idea of launching the service came from Italian lawyer Elio Blasio who has been living in Malta together with his family for over a year. Before becoming a lawyer, Dr Blasio was flight department commander of the Guardia di Finanza in Rome.
Apart from the Malta-Gozo transport service, HeliFly will also offer tours around the islands as well as trips to Sicily, Panarea and North Africa.
“When you fly by helicopter over Malta, you can admire its beauty,” Dr Blasio said.
“On board a helicopter, you can take your time and enjoy the spectacle of the Dingli cliffs, the old and new capital of Mdina and Valletta, Gozo and Comino.”
HeliFly is also teaming up with the European Pilot Academy and Eurotech-Ariane and Falcon Alliance to set up the first helicopter training school in the country.
The company operates different types of helicopters, including a Robinson R-22 and an Agusta A-109.
HeliFly will also cater for all kinds of customers, from tourists to VIPs and business people.
