Guernsey islanders and continental visitors can now benefit from a new, direct link to France this summer as Condor is starting a service to Cherbourg in Normandy.
The company has begun twice weekly sailings using Condor Liberation, complementing the existing Wednesday and Saturday schedule to St Malo. Condor believes the service will create new destinations to explore for Guernsey residents and attract new visitors to the
Island from the peninsula.
John Napton, Condor’s CEO, said: “With the opening of all borders in recent weeks, the link with Normandy will improve access to the Island which we hope will be beneficial for the visitor economy. We are therefore working with Visit Guernsey and other industry partners to create interest in Guernsey and promote to a wider audience.
“For Islanders travelling to France, there are plenty of options to suit a range of tastes and interests. Everything from following the footsteps of the Allies along the D-Day landing beaches and museums, to exploring the Titanic exhibition in Cherbourg itself to spending a couple of hours having an idyllic seafood lunch in one of the many villages along the coast.”
The service operates on Thursday/Fridays and Mondays from 1st April through to 24th October.
