Coronavirus: EU wants all borders re-opened by the end of the month
Commission to propose end of internal travel restrictions by 1 July All EU member states should lift their temporary coronavirus travel restrictions on each other by the end of the month, Brussels has said. The EUs home affairs commissioner, Ylva Johansson, was speaking ahead of a virtual meeting of national home affairs ministers on Friday.
The 27 member states will discuss how to restore freedom of movement as the pandemic abates across the continent, with many EU countries no longer reporting daily coronavirus deaths.
I think were coming very close to a situation where we should lift all the internal border restrictions and border checks, Ms Johansson told the channel Euronews.Im going to propose that the member states should lift all the internal border checks as soon as possible. And I think a good date should be the end of June.

Weekend layover again I suspect due to low Traffic.

Superfasts VII and VIII are also out of sync so they may be doing something similar on the North corridor.

Thinking of booking a trip to France on WBY seeing as we might be let in later in June/ July. However the fares on WBY are horrendous. Going out end of June and back mid July is 675 euro for 2 people without a cabin each way. I cannot remember paying fares like that. Anybody know what's going on?

Seems about par. Just had a quick look on Stena site and ex Rosslare to Cherbourg is 621euro going out on Sat 27 June and returning 15th July is 591euro so total 1212euro without cabins :-X

no-one will travel to ireland for holiday while lockdown measures are in place,

WB Yeats will remain on Dublin - Holyhead route until most likely August when goverment retrictions are lifted.

Swift will only be required at that point, in any case her charter options are slimb at this time.

As the 2nd New Build will not arrive for two or three years i expect Swift will remain in the fleet.

Its more likely some modifications have to be made to comply with Covid retrictions before she can carry passengers again.

Swift is berthed where Stena Lagan was laid up before she moved on I don't know if maintenance is being carried out on her but I suspect that she is just being mothballed and I'd guess that it is unlikely she will enter service this year (or ever again).
