1.        Background

The Ministry for Gozo, as the proponent of the project, will be embarking on this infrastructural project to upgrade the existing Gozo Heliport in Ta’ Lambert, Xewkija.

The objectives of the project are:

  • Continue addressing Gozo’s double insularity by adding additional avenue of accessibility;
  • Attract foreign investment, diversify the economy and create job opportunities;
  • Promote Gozo as a distinct destination and attract quality tourism;
  • Provide additional inter-island connectivity service and connect Gozo directly with other regions, and
  • Leverage on the availability of European Structural and Investment Funds.​

The project envisages the extension of the existing runway (which is currently 174m long) by a further 271-metres, to reach a total length of 445-metres (by 20-metres wide), including a safety area of 30-metres on each side (at each end) of the airstrip.

The envisaged upgrades are planned predominately within the airfield-designated territory. Currently the heliport is only used in cases of emergency by the air ambulance helicopter.
