Condor Rapide cancelled
St Malo sailings cancelled today and tomorrow
SERVICES between the Islands and St Malo have been cancelled today, Friday 01 and Saturday 02 December due to industrial action by St Malo Port stevedores.
Paul Luxon, Condor Ferries’ CEO, said the disruption caused was very frustrating and inconvenient for passengers but emphasised teams were working to contact all affected to offer alternative arrangements.
‘We are incredibly disappointed that through the actions of others our services are being cancelled so we have called in additional resources in our customer services’ department to ensure we speak to everyone and provide assistance with changing their travel plans.’
Condor Rapide is currently berthed in Jersey and will transfer passengers originally booked from Guernsey through to St Malo back to the island this evening.
‘Our intention by using Rapide is that all Guernsey and Jersey departing passengers are able to return to their homes this evening,’ Mr Luxon added.
Mr Luxon also confirmed that the company has been in dialogue with the local airlines to explore whether they are able to provide charters to Dinard Airport for passengers should they wish to use them.
The total number of passengers affected across today and tomorrow is between 2,000 and 3,000.
Further information will be released when available.
