Transport Minister says he is in talks for a new airline to come to Gibraltar next year

Another new airline may be flying to Gibraltar next year. In a Party Political Broadcast for the Liberal Party this evening, Transport Minister Vijay Daryanani confirmed that he is in talks with an airline to provide another link to the UK, in addition to the announcement made by Wizz Air earlier this week.

Mr Daryanani also revealed that the Easyjet Edinburgh Route which was supposed to start in March, but had been shelved because of Covid 19, will resume next year.

Mr Daryanani, who is also Minister for Tourism, said the pandemic had severely affected visits to Gibraltar and had a knock on impact on the retail sector, but assured he was in touch with major cruising companies to resume cruise calls when it becomes possible.
