Condor Ferries has suspended passenger sailings up to the end of April.
The company originally cancelled services for the 10 days between 23 March and 02 April and this is now being extended to include high speed sailings from Poole and St Malo up to 30 April.
The decision comes in response to the current restrictions on travel to and from the Channel Islands, France and the UK.
‘As a consequence of this unprecedented global crisis, we are suspending all passenger sailings for the whole of April. We have to react to the changing circumstances and government-imposed constraints on travel, which has sadly but inevitably led us to this course of action,’ said Paul Luxon, Condor’s CEO.
‘The cancellations include the Easter holidays so we regret the inconvenience this will cause.’
‘We remain absolutely committed to restarting services as soon as we can and connecting up our destinations. These are, of course, exceptional times and every day brings new information so our plans could change.’
Its freight line will continue as normal.
