Fourth Gozo ferry to resume trips as rise in crossings expected

1st July 2020

More than 35,000 people crossed the Gozo channel over the past long weekend.

The fourth Gozo Channel ferry, MV Nikolaos, is scheduled to resume operations tomorrow as the company expects demand for the service to increase.

More than 35,000 people crossed the Gozo channel over the past long weekend and over 14,500 vehicles were carried by the ferries between Friday and Tuesday, a Government statement said.

It pointed out that all the crossings consisted of internal tourism as no foreigners could visit the Maltese islands since the airport only resumed operations today.

Operating the fourth vessel means more frequent trips can be made. A new timetable, which comes into force tomorrow and runs until 8th November, will include 75 trips Mondays to Thursday; 87 trips Fridays and Saturdays, excluding public holidays; and 92 on Sundays, including public holidays.

The first ferry leaves Mġarr at 12.45am and Ċirkewwa at 1.15am and the last depart from Gozo at midnight and from Malta 45 minutes later.

Trips on Fridays and Saturdays also start at 12.45am Mġarr, departing from Ċirkewwa at 1.15am
