Virtu Ferries Ltd, the only sea vessel company that operates a passenger service to and from Malta, has issued a notice of possible changes in its weekend schedule. This is due to the forecasted unfavourable sea and weather conditions on Saturday 6th, Sunday 7th and Monday 8th January.
Therefore, Virtu Ferries advised that, although nothing is set is stone yet, “changes in schedule or cancellations might be necessary”.
In addition, it added extra trips on Friday 5th (tomorrow) to mitigate possible cancellations.
