GUG welcomes news of preparatory works on Gozo airstripThe Gozo University Group has said that it welcomes the news that the preparatory works for an airstrip in Gozo has got underway, “as we believe that such service is essential to the economical and social aspect of the island.”

“Gozo has the potential to be a distinct destination and therefore this service will strengthen the position of Gozo in the tourist market. The airstrip will also serve to attract touristic niches towards Gozo,” GUG concluded.

      According to the Gozo University Group “Gozo has the potential to be a distinct destination.” Really? It may have escaped your notice but Gozo already is a ‘ distinct destination’ and what makes it distinct is the fact that it can only be approached by ferry. And once again you have a group who have no idea what they are talking about trying to talk on behalf of tourists. Tourists are more than capable of talking for themselves and if an air connection was so important the last two helicopter services wouldn’t have failed. As a tourist I enjoy the trip over to Gozo on the ferry and far from strengthening the position of Gozo in the tourist market an airstrip will weaken it. Tourists are already getting fed up with the overdevelopment and hunting issues and now you want to chase them away completely!
