New Dover to Boulogne Service Planned for 2009
LD Lines granted port approval for new Dover-Boulogne service
By TTM on 06 October 2008 in News
LD Lines has received full approval from the Port of Dover for the introduction of its new Dover – Boulogne freight and passenger service in 2009.
Freight and tourist traffic, including coaches, cars and additionally foot passengers will be carried. The vessel “Norman Spirit”, which currently operates on LD Lines’ Portsmouth – Le Havre service, will be replaced on the Western Channel and is then expected to be transferred to operate the new Dover – Boulogne route.
The ship has capacity for 1850 passengers, 700 cars and 110 freight vehicles.
“Our entry into the highly competitive short sea cross channel ferry business is a major development for LD Lines. We are convinced that the service will undoubtedly attract new freight and tourist customers, which will benefit both Dover and Boulogne as departure and destination ports.”
Fares and reservation information for tourist passengers will be published in due course - visit : www.ldlines.com
