Media statement 22nd August
Today’s sailing of Condor Liberation has been disrupted due to an earlier security alert. The departure from Poole had to be delayed whilst Dorset Police conducted searches.
The alert was found to be a hoax. Naturally we are extremely disappointed that the irresponsible actions of an individual has inconvenienced our customers and diverted Police resources in this way.
We regret that due to the delayed departure and tidal restrictions in Jersey, it will be necessary to amend today’s service as follows:

Response to alternative survey
“We are aware that a further survey is being conducted about Condor Ferries by an individual.
The Comprehensive Service Review is being conducted in partnership with the States of Guernsey and the States of Jersey and the Terms of Reference were agreed between all parties.
We have appointed PA Consulting, an independent third party, to oversee and validate the Review process and its results. The Review is extremely wide ranging and involves an extensive consultation process beyond the online survey.
The consultation process has included roundtable meetings, one-to-one meetings, individual written submissions, the online survey with island residents as well as a survey for visitors to the Islands.
We will publish the results of the Comprehensive Service Review later this year.”

Condor Liberation - 8th August
Condor Liberation experienced a shutdown on one of her three main engines, due to a problem with the fuel system, whilst on passage to Guernsey earlier today (Monday 8 August).
We regret that this means the rest of today’s sailings will operate to a rescheduled timetable. The rescheduled service departed Guernsey at the slightly earlier time of 14.10, due to arrive into Poole at 18.10.
Our engineering team are working around the clock to rectify the issue, however, regrettably it is necessary to take Condor Liberation out of service tomorrow (Tuesday 9 August) for repair work to be carried out.
Therefore, the service between Poole and the Channel Islands tomorrow will be cancelled. All passengers booked on tomorrow’s Condor Liberation sailing are being contacted and offered alternative travel on the next available conventional or high speed ferry sailing
We are sorry for the disruption this unexpected issue has caused our passengers.
