Could Air Malta prove a challenge for AerCap?

All of Air Malta's 8 aircraft are currently leased from AerCap which is a rarity. The struggling State Island national carrier is under considerable pressure to remain an entity in the market as its cost cutting measures have been insufficient. With only a few options left, the Ishka view is that only a deeply restructured Air Malta can survive under the umbrella of a bigger carrier. However, the question is whether there are airlines willing to invest in Air Malta.
