RJ70 engine changes had cost Air Malta $540,000

During the time Air Malta operated its four RJ70 Avroliners there had to be 31 engine changes at a total cost of around $540,000, Finance Minister Tonio Fenech told Labour MP Joe Mizzi in reply to a parliamentary question on Tuesday. Minister Fenech said the primary cause of these engine changes used to be failure of bearings, overly high engine temperatures, and oil losses.

The cost of repairs had been partly offset by the engine manufacturer’s guarantee. The unrecovered cost had been about $300,000.
