Malta Air is a subsidiary of Ryanair and currently operates with six aircrafts decorated in the yellow and blue colours of the low-cost airline.
The production of the Boeing 737 MAX will be the first time that a plane within Malta Air’s fleet will sport its very own livery.
Ryanair currently has 210 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft on order, dating all the way back to 2014.
The first delivery was scheduled for April 2019 but this was delayed when the 737 MAX was grounded following a recurring failure in one of its systems that resulted in two fatal accidents, Lion Air Flight 610 in Indonesia and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, in which 346 people died in total.
The US Federal Aviation Administration cleared the MAX to return to service on 18th November.
