CONDOR’S agreement with Jersey could be ‘torn up’ to enable the operator to improve its fleet, Economic Development Minister Lyndon Farnham has said.
Yesterday, the ferry operator released its long-anticipated comprehensive service review, which analysed its operations and included a recommendation that the company could improve its fleet if it were to be given either a longer operating licence or a subsidy from the governments of both Jersey and Guernsey.
Economic Development Minister Lyndon Farnham said that he was due to meet his Guernsey counterpart, Economic Development president Peter Ferbrache, next week and, following that, senior representatives at Condor, to discuss the review.
He added that the while it was still too early to say what the outcome of the review would be, it presented the opportunity to ‘tear up’ the operating agreement and renegotiate terms in a way that ‘suit all parties better’.
Condor and Ports of Jersey signed a ten-year operating agreement in 2014.
