The Passenger Shipping Association has announced that Britain’s third annual National Ferry Fortnight will take place this year between May 14 and 28.

The two-week showcase is supported by all ferry line members of the PSA and was created to heighten awareness of Britain’s extensive ferry services of more than 50 routes.


The PSA reports that continuous investment in modern, versatile fleets has seen more people travelling by ferry, with some 35million passengers, eight million cars and more than 140,000 coaches carried last year. PSA members including Brittany Ferries, Condor Ferries, DFDS Seaways, Hovertravel, Isle Of Man Steam Packet Company, Irish Ferries, LD Lines, P&O Ferries, Red Funnel, Sea France, Stena Line and Wightlink will take part in the event. 

Central to campaign will be a series of promotional offers on ferry routes to the Continent, Ireland and UK islands which will be announced nearer the date and promoted online at
