Gozo Chan­nel (Op­er­a­tions) Limited reg­is­tered yet an­other pos­i­tive result in its pur­suit to in­crease ac­ces­si­bil­ity be­tween Malta and Gozo, a com­pany state­ment said.

Lat­est fig­ures show that there was an un­prece­dented num­ber of cross­ings be­tween the two is­lands over the last week­end, be­tween Fri­day 21 Oc­to­ber and Sun­day 23 Oc­to­ber.

In fact, compared to the same pe­riod last year, pas­sen­gers’ move­ments were up by 17% reach­ing 51,475, while ve­hi­cles cross­ing were up by an­other 15% reach­ing 14,069. In or­der to pro­vide a smooth, ef­fi­cient and re­li­able ser­vice, Gozo Chan­nel Limited was op­er­at­ing the three ves­sels in­creas­ing trips by 14% so as to en­sure enough ca­pac­ity for this record de­mand.

This pos­i­tive result fol­lows the €1.01 mil­lion profit reg­is­tered in 2015 as op­posed to the €1.6 mil­lion lost suf­fered in 2012. Gozo Chan­nel (Op­er­a­tions) Limited re­mains committed to con­trib­ute to Gozo’s eco­nomic growth and will con­tinue in its ef­forts to make the sis­ter is­land a qual­ity des­ti­na­tion for its fam­i­lies and busi­nesses.
