Stena Line reduces HSS service frequency(Read 4395 times)
Stena Line reduces HSS service frequency on: October 18, 2008, 04:45:26 pm
Stena Line has reduced its sailings on the Dun Laoghaire - Holyhead HSS service from two round sailings per day to one , the 1500 sailing from Holyhead and the return from Dun Laoghaire at 1745 has been cancelled
The reduced service commences 10th November 2008 until further notice , a new timetable will be drawn up during 2009.
There has been some concern expressed about the future viability of Dun Laoghaire port with only one departure per day if this were to be a long term measure

The HSS burns a crazy amount of fuel, you can understand the reasoning behind slowing her down (Stena added 15 minutes to her sailings this summer) and dropping sailings, hopefully this will be short term...

Stena have a contract with Dun Laoghair harbour to use the port until 2011, will be interesting to see what happens when this expires...
