DFDS claims Europe’s Leading Ferry Operator title at World Travel Awards

DFDS has been named Europe’s Leading Ferry Operator for the sixth year in a row at the World Travel Awards Europe Gala Ceremony in Sardinia.

The awards recognise excellence in the global travel and tourism industry and winners are decided by votes from the public and from travel industry professionals.

Max Foster, passenger director at DFDS said: “Our business celebrates its 150th anniversary this year and it’s great to mark this milestone by once again winning the approval of our guests and travel industry partners.

“Our seafarers and shore-based teams work incredibly hard to provide all our customers with the best possible service and winning this accolade for the sixth consecutive year is a testament to their success.


“Ferry travel is one of the most enjoyable and relaxing ways to travel and we’re continuously looking to develop our service to meet the needs of our growing customer base.

“We were delighted to welcome two new ships to our Dover-Calais fleet earlier this year and to celebrate a record number of passengers travelling on our Newcastle-Amsterdam service, making this past year one of our most successful ever.”

DFDS Seaways operates a comprehensive route network, including four services from the UK to Europe, via Dover-Dunkirk, Dover-Calais, Newhaven-Dieppe, and Newcastle-Amsterdam, offering passengers a gateway to the heart of Europe.

DFDS also operates a number of passenger ferry routes across the Baltic Sea and a service between Copenhagen and Oslo.
