Brittany Ferries’ position on reopening of French border

“This news comes as a great relief and I can only hope that we have seen the last border closure of the Covid crisis,” said Christophe Mathieu, CEO Brittany Ferries. “We’ve all suffered enormously over the last two years. Health care professionals are exhausted and businesses in the travel sector have struggled to survive. Thousands of Brittany Ferries passengers have been disrupted and millions of pounds in income has been lost as a consequence of draconian measures like border closures. Science has now delivered the means by which we can halt this cycle of pain and frustration. It’s up to all of us to embrace it.”

Mike Sellers, Portsmouth International Port’s director said: “The port, our largest customer Brittany Ferries and the wider travel sector have really suffered throughout the pandemic, responding to both UK and international restrictions. With this latest welcome news we’re looking forward to 2022 and opening up opportunities for passengers to enjoy much-needed holidays. As key workers we will continue working hard to make sure travel can continue safely.”
