Gozo Channel has advised that as from next Monday, the 8th of January, the MV Ta’ Pinu will be off-service at the dry-dock until Monday, the 29th of January.
To compensate for the decrease in vehicle capacity, as from Tuesday, the 9th, the morning trips, between Monday to Friday from Mgarr and Cirkewwa will be operated as follows:
Mgarr – 04:45, 5:30, 6:00, 6:30, 7:00 and 7:30am and from Cirkewwa – 5:15, 6:00, 6:30, 7:00, 7:30 and 8:15am.
Other trips will be performed according to the published schedule and a shuttle service will also be provided if demand so necessitates.
Gozo Channel said that it will also ensure that the MV Malita is operated with both hoistable decks down so that it can cater for the heavy traffic as and when necessary.
The above arrangements will remain operational until the MV Ta’ Pinu returns to service and depending on weather conditions, the company said.
