Cruise Ferry Offers Free Repatriation

DFDS Seadways offers Sterling airlines passengers free repatriation to Denmark

Published 29 October 2008 in News

DFDS Seaways has responded to today’s news of the bankruptcy of Danish airline Sterling Airlines A/S with the offer of free repatriation for all Sterling Airline customers stranded in the UK.

The collapse of Sterling Airlines will mean that no Sterling Airlines’ passengers in the UK will be able to use their return airline tickets with the airline and are, therefore, currently stranded in the UK.

To assist with repatriation, the cruise ferry operator DFDS Seaways will offer travel onboard the m.s. DANA SIRENA to all Danish residents and British travellers holding valid Sterling Airline tickets. The m.s. DANA SIRENA sails three times weekly from Harwich to Esbjerg.

John Crummie, UK Managing Director of DFDS Seaways said: “We recognise that this is a worrying time for Sterling Airlines customers currently stranded in the UK. As a Danish company we are keen to assist in getting people back home to Denmark.

“DFDS Seaways will honour all valid Sterling Airlines tickets and offer free travel onboard the m.s. DANA SIRENA to Esbjerg subject to availability.”

All Sterling Airlines’ customers who hold a valid ticket with the airline are eligible for free travel from Harwich to Esbjerg in a standard class cabin, subject to availability, until Thursday 6th November.

For more information contact DFDS Seaways on 0871 882 0890 for more details.
