Port of Gibraltar has announced that 1,793 vessels called at the Western Mediterranean hub for bunkers during the first four months of this year. This is higher than the 1,691 calls recorded for the equivalent period in 2020.
A total of 496 vessels arrived at the Port of Gibraltar for bunker supply during April, which was the highest recorded monthly total since October 2019.
This figure represents an increase of 56 calls, a 12.7% rise compared to April 2020, and is up by 19 calls on the March 2021 figure. The port no longer publishes details of bunker sales volumes.
In total 782 vessels in total called at Gibraltar in April 2021. This was 73 more than the 709 calls in April 2020, and 27 more than the 755 calls recorded for March this year. Total gross tonnage for all vessels in April was 22,374,107, a 7.7% increase on 2020 despite the absence of cruise ships, which normally form an important part of the port’s business.
Gibraltar has been Covid-19 free since April and is on the UK government Green List for air travel.
