Ferry operator Stena Line has increased the frequency of voyages between Fishguard and Rosslare from 14 to 24 weekly. The increased frequency is good news for the company’s Welsh Fishguard port, where service has declined due to reduced cargo and passenger demand as a result of both the COVID-19 blockade and Brexit.
Stena Line anticipates a busy summer, hoping that the blockade restrictions will be relaxed and tourist trips from abroad will soon resume. The Fishguard-Roslea route is especially popular with tourists as it offers the most convenient options at the shortest intersection between the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.
Car cations are the preferred travel mode this year as more and more people are choosing to drive their vacations in the UK and Ireland, better than the picturesque Wales coast and Ireland’s “sunny southeast”. It is expected to be.
Paul Grant, Director of Trade in the Irish Sea, said: The Irish harbor was booming with direct flights to France, but the Welsh harbor was quiet.
“We expect confidence in overpass freight movements to regain as trade flows between the UK and Ireland begin to recover. Shorter, faster and more frequent routes are always popular with carriers and their customers. In addition, we know that there is a great deal of demand for travel and that in-flight returns at duty-free stores will bring even greater value to passengers traveling on the Stena Line. “
