P&O Ferries boosts cross channel capacity

P&O Ferries has introduced more capacity to its Dover–Calais service in light of the disruption to SeaFrance services on the route.

SeaFrance failed to return to the seas earlier following a court decision rejecting a proposed takeover of the bankrupt operator.

The European Seaway has joined P&O Ferries’ Dover fleet to boost freight capacity. 

The ship is a dedicated freight ferry that can carry 120 heavy goods vehicles.

P&O Ferries now has six ferries sailing between Dover and which between them can make up to 30 return crossings a day.

The company says that it has ample capacity to repatriate freight and tourist traffic displaced by the suspension of SeaFrance services. 

As this is the off-peak for tourists, the company does not require further tourist capacity at this time.
