Brittany Ferries to suspend Plymouth services until next March
Brittany Ferries will suspend its services at Plymouth between the end of October 2020 and March 2021, according to the Plymouth Herald.
The cross-channel ferry company have made the change due to a drop in demand from both passengers and freight as a result of Covid-19.
One of the knock on effects of the move is that there is no-longer a need for a Brexit lorry park in the area this coming January.
The suspension of services from Plymouth means that as of November, Brittany Ferries’ Armorique vessel will be used for freight-only services from Portsmouth rather than its traditional Plymouth to Roscoff route. Sailings from Plymouth to Santander will also be suspended come the end of the month.
However, Brittany Ferries will resume services from Plymouth in late March 2021, and are even considering doubling the number of services on its Plymouth to Santander route.
