Air Malta announced on Wednesday it had appointed Paul Sies as Chief Commercial Officer with immediate effect.

Sies, who will be responsible for leading all commercial activity on a day-to-day basis, worked for over 25 years at senior management level developing businesses for large organisations including British Airways, Virgin, Centerparcs, and selected Sabre airline and (online) customers.

He successfully transformed and launched new airlines and resorts in Belgium, Kuwait, Dubai, Egypt, France, Germany, Libya, Cameroon, Tunisia and most recently in the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Belgium and England.

Sies was engaged by Air Malta to continue on the path of innovative commercial developments launched by Ursula Silling who left her post at the end of 2016.

“Paul brings with him a wealth of knowledge of international airline commercial business,” said Joseph Galea, Air Malta’s Acting Chief Executive. “His expertise in e-commerce, marketing, network development and turnaround management in the aviation industry will be an asset to Air Malta.”

Galea said it was not easy to attract talent with such international exposure and that this appointment was further evidence of Air Malta’s good reputation in the international aviation business.

“I am confident that he is the ideal candidate to continue leading the change in our commercial division and to generate new revenue streams for the airline,” Galea said.

On taking up his appointment, Sies said that, having worked closely on several projects with Air Malta in the past, it was a pleasure to actually start working for the airline.

“I believe my wide background of turnarounds can be beneficial in working with the management of Air Malta to continue moving the airline forward,” he said. “It’s not every day you get the opportunity to work for a respected brand like Air Malta and get the opportunity to be part of re-writing the future.”
