The Gozo Channel Ferry is the main link from Malta to its sister island, Gozo. As there is no airport on Gozo the ferry offers an important link between the two islands. With a daily average of 27 round trips, this sea transport service is a safe and reliable way for passengers and vehicles to travel between Malta and Gozo throughout the year. Created in 1979, the Gozo Channel Company has since developed and maintained an efficient and economic service for local and foreign customers. The first operating ferry service between the two islands was recorded in 1241, with a regular service commencing in 1885.
