Gozo Channel will be suspending its ferry service between 12.00 noon and 15.00 on Christmas and New Year’s Day to allow Gozo Channel employees, who will be on duty on these two days, to lunch with their respective families and friends.
The company said that on both feasts, the 12.00 noon, 12.45, 13.30 and 14.15 hrs trips from Mgarr to Cirkewwa and the 12.45, 13.30, 14.15 and 15.00 hrs trips from Cirkewwa will not be operated.
This means that the last trip from Mgarr will be at 11.15am, while the last trip from Cirkewwa is scheduled for 12.00 noon.
The service will resume in the afternoon at 15.00 hrs from Mgarr to Cirkewwa, while the first trip from Cirkewwa to Mgarr will be at 15.45 hrs.
