The announcement by the Minister for Gozo of a fourth ferry for the Gozo Channel fleet has been welcomed by the Gozo Business Chamber.
In a statement, it said that the present service situation warrants this increase and the Chamber has been “clamouring for this for years.”
The Chamber added that “it is hoped that the saturation point that has now been reached will be alleviated by this vessel so that the service will improve for all commuters.”
In this way vessel maintenance can be better planned and a dedicated service for cargo can be introduced again,” it added.
The Gozo Business Chamber concluded by saying that “it is understood that the lease of this vessel is of a temporary nature and for a definite period until an international tender can be issued in this regard.”
