Brittany Ferries 'raring to go'

Brittany Ferries says it has now established plans to resume services and is raring to go, once it gets permission from authorities.

In the latest message to passengers, CEO Christophe Mathieu said: "There's no doubt that holiday plans are rising up the agenda. There are more reports in the press about companies preparing for a resumption of services. And lockdowns are continuing to ease - partially at least - across Europe.

"Our own plans for a return to service are now well-established. And we are all raring to go."

He outlined some of the measures that would be in place once sailings resume.

These include all passengers wearing masks in public areas, ports, garages and passenger decks, but said this will be subject to review as the global pandemic evolves through the summer.

Passengers will also be asked to arrive in ports 90 minutes before departure, as opposed to 45, so that boarding can be staggered. Disembarkation will be staggered too.

"This week we've been speaking directly with some customers about these on changes, to gauge reaction and opinion," he said.

"All were very understanding. There certainly seems to be a sense that we are all in this together: everyone on board, passengers and crew, sees the importance of common sense and consideration for others.

"While strange to begin with, the measures will still allow us to take in sea air while on board. And I should be clear here that sea air is supplied in all individual cabins and public areas on the ship. There is no air recirculation on board Brittany Ferries."
