Virtu ferries Asked for a 10-year Quay Concession in the Port of Catania

In order to start the new high-speed service linking Malta and Sicily (which has been recently postponed of few months), Virtu Ferries has just asked the local port authority a quay concession in the pot of Catania.

The request is for 10 years, for a surface of roughly 5,000m2 (onshore and offshore).

Virtu Ferries will deploy JEAN DE LA VALLETTE between Valletta and Catania responding to the requirements of Maltese and Sicilian importers and exporters while the other unit in fleet, SAINT JOHN PAUL II (photo), is to remain active between Malta and the Sicilian port of Pozzallo.
