DFDS Seaways reroutes vessels around Calais strike

DFDS Seaways is continuing to divert a fourth ship to its Dover-Dunkirk service for the 16th day in a row as on-going strike action by former MyFerryLink workers continues to prevent the company from operating a full service into Calais. 

Carsten Jensen, senior vice president and head of DFDS Seaways in the UK commented: “We would like to reassure all our customers that we are open for business on the Channel, with the Calais Seaways continuing to operate on the Dunkirk route alongside our three normal ships.

“This means that we are currently sailing up to 32 times a day between Dover and France.”

All passengers booked to travel are advised to proceed to the port as normal but to allow extra time for arrival and to travel via the M2/A2 as a more convenient route to Dover.

Freight customers will need to travel via the M20/A20 to Dover.


Dover-Dunkirk ships are currently operating to schedule.

DFDS Seaways normally sails up to 44 times a day between Dover and France, including up to 20 daily crossings on the Dover-Calais service.
