Brittany Ferries is scheduled to commence a staggered resumption of passenger services, starting today, more than three months after it suspended passenger services because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Four ships would sail today, June 29th, with four more resuming services by July 17th.
No foot passengers will be permitted; reserved seats or cabins will be compulsory. Overall passenger capacity had been reduced by more than 60%, the company said.
There will be staggered embarkation and disembarkation.
Three ships – Barfleur, Etretat and Normandie Express – will not sail this summer due to insufficient cabins and “unpredictable demand”, the company said.
Brittany Ferries operates routes from Portsmouth and Plymouth to Santander and Bilbao and cross-Channel ferries to France from Cork, Plymouth, Poole, Portsmouth and Rosslare – although Poole will not be served this summer.
