Gozo smashes official tourism records for 2018

More of us than ever are going to Gozo.

Malta’s pretty little sister is breaking new tourism records, according to the latest official figures.

Passenger numbers on the Gozo Channel ferries soared by more than five per cent in the last three months of the year.

The total smashed the 1.3 million mark between October and December 2018.

The highest number of passengers was recorded in October, at almost 495,000.

That works out as 37.5 per cent of the total for the three month period.

As in previous years, August was the busiest month on the Gozo ferries in 2018.
