P&O response to airline crisis
Ferry company services nearing capacity
By TTM on 15 April 2010 in News
P&O Ferries is urging passengers to pre-book before travel as the unprecedented disruption to air traffic means many of the ferry company's services are nearing capacity.
The company says many of its incoming sailings were already very heavily booked for the next few days with returning Easter holidaymakers, and outward departures have seen a huge surge in bookings since the flight cancellations began.
A spokesman said: "All our services are operating normally but it is important that passengers who do not already hold a reservation check availability before setting out to travel. Not surprisingingly our call centre and website are under tremendous pressure so we apologise if our response times are somewhat slower than we would wish."
Foot passengers in particular are reminded that there are no foot passenger services on Dover ferry services overnight, due to the lack of onward travel options by either bus or train.
