They would if it made financial sense to do so.

Irish Ferries have made Dover - Calais a Strategic Route. See their results posting for H1 2021.

They are more likely to buy P&O out than to pull out of Dover Calais.

There has been a drop off of freight during the summer months due to a variety of factors.

When Calais Seaways " Isle of Inishfree "enters service i am confident their business will pick up.

Its very possible a second route is on their radar when the 3rd ferry arrives in 2022.

There is another rumour doing the rounds that she is staying with DFD's until March 2022 as drydock cover.

I suspect this is wishful thinking on behalf of Calais based crew.

Irish Ferries in their half year results stated they had contracted an additional ferry to enter service in its operations in Q4 2021.

Calais Seaways in in Layup at the moment and is on standbye until the new ship settles down into operation.

Irish Ferries have a trading update before the end of August and if anything is happening it will be released at that time.

Swift had two engines fully rebuilt in March to May 2020

Shes fully operational when the demand comes back.

My guess bookings are flat due to travel uncertainty to Britian

your missing the point here. There is a Euro 2'000 fine per person for non essential overseas travel,

By the time Mid July comes it may be possible to travel on vaccine passport so before you attempt to travel to France you will know exactly where you stand without unncessary out of pocket expenses.

Isle of Inishmore heading to Odense.

Perhaps for Scrubber installation.

Epsilon was delayed going into service first due to issues with training and a life boat.

Hopefully Mega Express 4 will not take too long to go into service.

Mega Express 4 has more lane metres than Oscar Wilde had.

She was modified to increase her cabin capacity from 1950 LM to 1400 LM.

She is a sister of the Brittany Ferries Vessel Cap Finist?re.

She has a dip pool on her upper deck and good facilities on board.

The lease is initially for 2 months, however given Covid and Brexit and post covid demand she may hang around for longer.
