Business Details

Virtu Ferries provides a High Speed Passenger / Car Ferry Service between Malta and Sicily.

This service is currently operated by M/V Saint John Paul II, capacity 900 passengers and 167 cars or 23 heavy commercial vehicles.

The vessel joined the Virtu fleet in March 2019 from shipbuilders Incat of Tasmania. Currently the Company carries over 300,000 passengers and 70,000 vehicles annually on this route. The route was previously operated by M/V Jean De La Valette, delivered to Virtu by shipbuilders Austal Ships of Western Australia, capacity 800 passengers and 156 cars.

The vessel is currently deployed, on behalf of the Government of Trinidad and Tobago, after an international call, on a route between the main island of Trinidad and the sister island of Tobago.

A schedule of just over 1000 round trips per year provide for year-round Day Return Excursions to Sicily from Malta and similar seasonal excursions to Malta from Sicily; these excursions, of ever increasing popularity, have turned Malta and Sicily into two-point tourist destinations.

Significantly the schedule also caters for niche commercial markets with a daily interchange of fresh agricultural and dairy products and fish between the two islands. Saint John Paul II and Jean De La Valette before her have revolutionized transport, and consequently trade, between these two Mediterranean islands.
