Condor 'should change timetable' to make journeys of visitors easier, says tourism head

News | Published:

CONDOR should consider changing its fast-ferry timetable to make life easier for holidaymakers visiting the Island, according to the chief executive of Visit Jersey.

Today, in the first of a four-part series of JEP articles, Keith Beecham has offered his thoughts on the timings of the operator's crossings and also claimed that there has been a 42 per cent drop in the number of passengers travelling to Jersey by ferry in the last 13 years.

Referring to Condor's timetable for the Liberation, Mr Beecham said that there was 'room for improvement'. Currently the Liberation leaves Poole early in the morning, while return sailings dock at Poole in the evening.

Mr Beecham said he would like Condor to berth the Liberation in the Channel Islands overnight so outward sailings left Poole in the afternoon and return sailings arrived in Poole at about midday, to benefit holidaymakers – especially families.
