Confitarma calls on MIT to allow all companies to sailing to carry out passenger services with Sardinia

Mattioli: after the one-year extension of the convention Tirrenia, we did not expect to be further penalized just at the time of the reopening of passenger connections

The Italian Confederation of Armatori (Confitarma) has urged the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport to change the decree issued yesterday by the ministry in concert with the Ministry Health that, in relation to liaison activities maritime with the major islands, has, among other things, that "up to 12 June, the shipping of travellers line to and from Sardinia is limited to services carried out in territorial continuity, all connections to and from the Sardinia to national ports and vice versa will be reactivated by the June 13th."

The confederation of owners pointed out that, at a time when so difficult for the whole maritime sector that is recording noticeable declines in turnover, "it is evident that, the inability to carry out connection services shipping companies for the many shipping companies on the routes to Sardinia excluded from the decree, creates serious dismay and concern as well as obvious inconveniences for travellers. In Confitarma recalled: Sardinia is a important tourist destination and all shipping companies have already registered numerous bookings for boarding to region and have long been active to be in compliance with all required health protocols."

"We are certain," said the President of Confitarma, "We are sure Mario Mattioli - that the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport will immediately remedy this clear mis wording that causes serious harm to the companies already heavily penalized by the emergency Covid-19 and that throughout the quarantine period have never stopped their ships, securing the necessary supplies food, energy and health care to the Sardinian region and Italy whole thing.'

"Following the one-year extension of the Tirrenia Convention - concluded Mattioli -- we didn't expect to be further penalized at the very moment of the reopening of the connections passengers, which they all hoped to be the beginning of a possible resumption.'
