Gozo-Sicily flights hindered by police concerns

Karl Stagno-Navarra

Police concerns are reportedly hindering the start of a seaplane air service from Gozo’s Mgarr harbour to Sicily as from this summer.
Reliable sources revealed that Harbour Air, which operates the 10 minute flights from Malta International Airport to Mgarr harbour and back, have been waiting for the police to clear security issues for them to start operating the service to Sicily.
While the Ministries for Tourism and Home Affairs are reportedly trying to find a speedy solution to the security concerns expressed by the police for the introduction of the new route, Harbour Air has just brought over to Malta its second twin-Otter aircraft that seats up to 17 passengers.
The trip to Sicily is expected to take 50 minutes and a round trip flight is expected to cost between €150 and €210.
