New operator for Dover to Calais route
Seafrance in administration, but DFDS and LD Lines to take over the cross-Channel route
Published 12 January 2012 in News
Following the liquidation of the French ferry company Seafrance this week, a new operator is likely to service their Dover to Calais route.
Ferry companies DFDS Seaways and LD Lines revealed plans to operate a service on this route in partnership and have put in a bid to acquire some of Seafrance's assets. The French courts have rejected the bid.
The partnership would like to operate two ships using an entirely French crew.
In the meantime, the route is serviced by P&O ferries with up to 46 sailings a day.
