As the low season arrives, the port's operational needs are fewer, so from tomorrow, 22 November, until 15 March, the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB), in collaboration with Eivissa Tow
The Board of Directors of the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has approved the ordinance establishing the organisation and assignment of berths in the ports of Eivissa and La Savina. This is the first time that a call schedule for the regular Eivissa - la Savina line has been drawn up, and the new safety criteria established for this traffic in the service area of both ports.
This new schedule means that the ships on this regular line will carry out manoeuvres one at a time in the Restricted Navigation Zones defined close to the berths assigned to this line in each of its ports.
This new measure improves port traffic safety and avoids the waiting times that occurred last season.
The application of these new criteria in the call schedule for the regular Eivissa - la Savina line, the busiest in the country, has been achieved through the collaboration of the shipping companies operating on this line, the Ibiza and Formentera Maritime Captaincy, the Ibiza Pilots’ Corporation and Salvamento Marítimo, and supported by the Balearic Government and the Formentera Council. Since July 2021, they have been working together with APB technicians to implement these and other measures to improve the service and safety of this strategic regular line for the Pine Islands.
On 8 April 2022, this new schedule began a test phase, and once the new ordinance comes into force it will be implemented according to a compulsory procedure that must be complied with within the deadlines set by that ordinance.
