Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Air Malta has stated that to ensure that discussions with the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) continue, it has agreed to withdraw the Inhibition Order against the Union.

Air Malta has also agreed to set off the expenses related to the case.

In a statement, Air Malta said that as from the coming Monday the two parties will continue with discussions on the 16th of December.

The national airline had taken out an Inhibition Order after ALPA had ordered industrial action in July, after the Government refused to give a guarantee that each pilot is compensated with €700,000 if the company ceases operations.

Air Malta had said that the short-lived industrial action, which caused a number of morning flights to be delayed by around 30 minutes, was not completely lawful within the grounds of industrial disputes.
