Brittany Ferries has announced a new ferry route linking Spain and Ireland.
"This is a significant move for Brittany Ferries, one which follows our strategy of diversification. This new route will also present more options to freight companies operating throughout Ireland, Spain, Portugal and Southern France."
said Christophe Mathieu, CEO of Brittany Ferries.
The Cork to Santander ship is currently serving routes between Italy and Greece and will be chartered from Stena RoRo for an initial period of two years. She will carry up to 500 passengers with space for 195 cars. She hosts 2,225 lane metres of garage space and Brittany Ferries expects a fifty-fifty split between passengers and freight carried.
An extra return sailing will also be added to the Cork - Roscoff route.
The new route will be added to our Brittany Ferries sailing schedule soon.
