Discussion Board / Official 2018 Sea Passenger Statistics!
« on: November 27, 2019, 01:53:11 am »
Having looked at the sea passenger statistics for 2018, it doesn't make pretty reading I'm afraid. Passenger numbers have been steadily declining since 1998 and it looks as if that trend will continue for the forceable future. Holyhead passenger numbers are just about holding at the same level as in previous years. Larne - Cairnryan and Liverpool/Heysham - Doulglas are not doing well at all with the former experiencing a drop of -5% and Isle of Man routes droping by -5% and -7%. What the future holds for Irish Sea footpax doesn't look too promising. I hope I am wrong!
