After three failed attempts at issuing a call for tenders for the ferry service between the Grand Harbour, Valletta and the Mġarr Harbour, Gozo, it seems the islands will be served by two operators:
- Virtu Ferries, with a ferry from its fleet
- Gozo Fast Ferry Ltd, a company related to newcomer Ponte Ferries. The company has acquired two 300-pax fast ferries. The company collaborates with Malta Public Transport for a seamless, link with the bus service.
- Starting June
