Goodbye LD Lines/ DFDS Portsmouth


Recommended Posts

Having closed the short-lived Poole to Spain routes at the start of the month, DFDS are now talking to the unions with a view to stopping Portsmouth - Le Havre at the end of the year.

With a question mark hanging over the future of Newhaven - Dieppe it looks like Brittany Ferries will soon have the non-Dover routes all to themselves.

[quote user="woolybanana"]The reason these routes are closing is that the boats would have to have scrubbers fitted to reduce pollution levels and it is just not economical. Scrubbers come dear these days![/quote]

On that basis, I wouldn't hold out much hope for Newhaven-Dieppe as the ferry there is the sister ship of the one currently used between Portsmouth and Le Harvre.
