Discussions on re-introduction of Malta-Gozo helicopter service

The Minister for Gozo, Justyne Caruana, said discussions are ongoing with the Ministry for Tourism for the re-introduction of the helicopter service between Malta and Gozo.

During the 11th edition of the Gozo Tourism Awards, the Minister spoke of the need for greater communication between the two islands. As last year Gozo Channel had ferried over 5.5 million passengers and more than 1.6 million vehicles there is obviously a need for other means of transport.

Dr Caruana added there is a need for more enhancements in the tourism product, not only infrastructural but direct and indirect support for operators and better accessibility between the two islands, including the construction of the Gozo Tunnel that will get underway during this legislature.

Six persons who are directly involved in the Gozo tourism industry were awarded for their work and contribution in this sector. Mario Schembri was awarded Employee of the Year in the Gozo tourist sector; Warren Vella received the award as Youth Employee of the Year; the Tourism Enterprise award went to Ferdinand Portelli; other honour went to Silvio Rapa and ITS student Francesco Cauchi.
