FERRY + HOTEL
For those of you perusing our website for perhaps the first time, welcome to Condor Ferries.
As the main ferry operator connecting the Channel Islands to the UK and France, Condor recognises the importance of its operations for the communities it serves and as a key stakeholder for local socioeconomic wellbeing. We are fully aware of our responsibilities for providing lifeline freight, passenger services and supporting the inbound tourism market.
We never forget our Islands’ historical roots, give back to these communities and listen, collaborate and respond to requests with understanding and positivity.
Creating a more sustainable ferry industry is our most important journey yet, providing opportunities for improvement and innovation. Our plan for sustainability develops key stakeholder relationships, furthers our understanding of customer needs and expectations, regulatory requirements, and employee input.
Condor understands the impact of its operations on the environment and the significance of climate risks, as well as the opportunities to create value around environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations which we are embedding in our core principles.
Condor Ferries is a subsidiary of CTI’s European Sustainable Infrastructure Fund which acquired the company in November 2019 in a consortium with Brittany Ferries. The Fund’s unique, evergreen structure is best-suited for holding long-term, income-producing infrastructure assets such as Condor.
We hope you find our ESG framework of interest and look forward to sharing more of our journey with you in the years ahead.
Commodore, founded in 1947 and later rebranded as Condor Ferries in 1964, initially provided passenger service between France and the Channel Islands. In 1987, we launched the first service connecting the Channel Islands with the UK. Since then, Condor has operated a year-round service linking the UK through Poole and Portsmouth to the Channel Islands through Guernsey and Jersey, with destinations in St Malo and Cherbourg, France.
Today, Condor Ferries carries almost one million passengers and 200,000 passenger vehicles annually. Our fleet consists of two high-speed ferries, Condor Liberation and Condor Voyager. Additionally, we operate the conventional car, passenger, and freight vessel, Commodore Clipper, which offers a six-day-a-week, year-round service. Another vessel, Commodore Goodwill, exclusively handles freight transportation. Condor Islander will be in service by the end of 2023.
The fleet plays a crucial role in transporting 100,000 freight vehicles to the Channel Islands each year and exporting large quantities of local produce. To read more about the history of Condor Ferries, please visit our about us page.
We conscientiously recognize the environmental impact of our transportation operations and remain committed to actively mitigating these effects through various means. Moreover, we deeply value the vital role that charities and community organizations play within the communities we serve, and we are enthusiastic about contributing to their endeavours to achieve their objectives.
Our core mission revolves around fostering the well-being and prosperity of the communities we serve. In pursuit of this goal, we are dedicated to managing our environmental impact responsibly and proactively adopting innovative and collaborative approaches and technologies. As part of our long-term vision, we aspire to achieve climate neutrality by the year 2050.
