Lovely Gozo Airport
The second airport in Malta is Xewkija or Gozo (GZM), located on the island of Gozo. It is mainly a heliport where you can charter a modern helicopter, with the assistance of Aviav TM Cofrance SARL . A helicopter flight is more than just moving from one place to another. It’s always an exciting experience. The island heliport of Xewkija, located in the land of the fabled nymph, Calypso, is not connected to the international airport in Valletta by regular flights. In fact, it is a helipad serving private helicopters.
Aviav TM Cofrance SARL’s staff will charter a helicopter for you to travel both inside and outside Malta, as well as offer air taxi services, the arrangements being completed within no longer than several hours and will not cause any problem or delay.
The helipad landing area consists of 23 sectors. Guests are welcome to stay either at nearby modern hotels or cozy, traditionally designed guest houses located on the pristine beaches of the Mediterranean coast. A flight in a private helicopter with Aviav TM Cofrance SARL from the airport in Valletta is short but very picturesque. From helicopter windows, travellers can admire the view of ancient citadel, temples, bastions, whimsically curved capes and an endless open sea with yachts and ships.
Aviav TM Cofrance SARL’ staff are always there to offer air sightseeing tours around the Maltese archipelago from the airport in the capital, Valletta and Gozo heliport.
