25th May 2021 - Press Release

Port of Dover's resilience goes up another level



The Port of Dover has welcomed the announcement by P&O Ferries and DFDS of a space charter agreement as a powerful statement of returning focus to driving the unrivalled benefits of the Dover-Calais crossing.

After a consistent period of smooth operations following the end of the Transition Period and continuous operations throughout the Covid pandemic, Dover has clearly demonstrated why it remains the market choice.

Today’s news shows just how much determination there now is to preserve and maximise the unique advantages of high pace, frequency and capacity provided to supply chains on the shortest sea crossing between the UK and its principal global trading partner – the EU.

Doug Bannister, Chief Executive, Port of Dover, said: “Developing the ferry product by maximising choice, capacity, flexibility and resilience in this way is a fantastic demonstration by the ferry operators of how the Dover route is responding to renewed market confidence.

We look forward to seeing the benefits of this announcement being realised as the port and ferry operators continue to support the UK in getting back to normal and driving future economic success across the nation from Dover.”
