Malta International Airport announces the extension of the Company CFO’S term and the appointment of a new head

Malta International Airport today announced the extension of the term of its chief financial officer and the appointment of a head of sustainability and analytics for the company.

Malta International Airport CFO, Karl Dandler, will retain his current position until 1 September 2025. Karl Dandler assumed responsibility for the financial activities of the company in 2015, having already held top leadership positions within the aviation industry.

Mr Dandler’s understanding of economics and the aviation industry were crucial to the formulation of the company’s strategy to preserve cash flow during the COVID-19 pandemic and successfully navigate the crisis.

Mr Dandler is also a member of the company’s Board of Directors.

Malta International Airport’s appointment of Justine Baldacchino as Head of Sustainability and Analytics marks a first for the company. Ms Baldacchino joined the Company in 2012 as a Research Analyst and has, most recently, occupied the role of Sustainability and Analytics Manager.

In her new position, Ms Baldacchino will retain responsibility for the setting of environmental targets in relation to climate, waste and water management while leading the effort to reach them, as well as manage the airport’s progression in the Airport Carbon Accreditation Programme. Ms Baldacchino will also continue to oversee the analytics function, leading the company to implement further data-driven improvements.

Ms Baldacchino is a member of the Company’s Corporate Responsibility Committee and established Malta International Airport’s Environmental Working Group in 2021.

“I would like to thank Karl and Justine for their valuable contributions to the Company so far, and I look forward to working with them at this critical juncture for Malta International Airport. These appointments ensure that there is continuity at a time when we are realising an ambitious €175 million investment plan while gearing up for the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive’s increased requirements in relation to ESG,” said Malta International Airport CEO Alan Borg.
