New Dover-Calais ferry operator sails

Dover, UK: My Ferry Link, the name of the new cross-Channel operator which is leasing three ex-SeaFrance vessels from Eurotunnel, yesterday launched its maiden service on the Calais-Dover route with an early morning sailing to Dover.

SeaFrance suspended services in November last year and since then DFDS Seaways, in a joint-venture with LD Lines has launched a Calais-Dover service with two vessels. P&0 has also increased its capacity on the strait.

Jean-Michel Giguet, director, My Ferry Link, director, said yesterday: “What is important today is that we have taken to the sea and that the project on paper has become a reality.”

“The task now is to develop our market share for passenger and freight traffic and we can count on a very professional and motivated workforce in order to do so.”

My Ferry Link will operate two vessels, each plying four daily round trips. Freighter vessel, Nord Pas de Calais, which is currently under maintenance, is expected to join the Berlioz and Rodin in November, Giguet says.

As yet there is no website for the new ferry company but agents are taking bookings for the service.
