  • Inadequacies to build upon

    Under the previous administration, all illegal development carried out prior to January 1, 1993 within the established building zone boundaries was immune to direct action. Once served with an enforcement notice to remove the illegality, the owner...

  • Airline’s new flight plans

    I read with great concern the article regarding Air Malta’s new plans, which are apparently drawn up in agreement with Alitalia. In a nutshell, this to me means that Air Malta would be giving up one-third of its present European routes in exchange...

  • Allow Air Malta to fly

    There is no other way to put it: Air Malta is in a mess. I am not referring to the service given to its customers, which I think is excellent. I am referring to its current existential crisis. In the past, the airline carried out some dubious...

  • Lure them here

    I was not shocked by the number of tourists I recently heard complaining about the bus service. Mellieħa is a European Destination of Excellence and the local council does a good job with the beach and events in the village but for the average...

  • Auditions for Manoel Theatre’s youth opera and theatre groups

    It is, undoubtedly, an excellent time to be involved in the arts in Malta right now, with young performers having a myriad of opportunities available for training and performing in various art forms. Over the past five years, Toi Toi, the Teatru...

  • Jack’s Fusion launch debut EP

    Impulse – a sudden pushing or driving force, an accelerated desire to act and a fitting name for Jack’s Fusion’s debut EP. The choice of the EP title, the band explains, was purely due to its reflection of the band’s energy and spirit, comparable,...

  • Supporting junior engineers

    Some 115 student teams from over 20 nations put themselves to the test across a wide range of disciplines after receiving an invitation to take part in the Formula Student Germany competition. Three of the six teams supported by Porsche achieved a...
