News | Published: | Last Updated:

AN extra cross Channel sailing is scheduled for Monday 8 January following a week of stormy weather conditions.

Condor Liberation

Condor has announced that the Liberation will provide a cross Channel sailing to increase travel capacity for passengers who have been disrupted by the recent storms.

The ferry operator has put on a service from Poole to Jersey via Guernsey which is due to leave the UK at 4.30 am. The Liberation is expected to arrive in Guernsey at 7.30 am before sailing to Jersey arriving at 9 am.

Paul Luxon, chief executive of Condor Ferries, said: 'We’ve all seen how challenging the weather conditions have been in the last week and our crew onboard ships have worked tirelessly to keep our routes to the Islands operating whenever it’s been safe and legal to do so. Despite their efforts and the hard work of our customer-facing teams who’ve kept passengers up to date with their travel options we know some people have still to complete their journeys.

'So, I’m delighted that we’ve been able to add an additional sailing between Poole and the Channel Islands on Monday as the weather conditions are moderate, boosting travel options for our customers.

'Our customer contact centre is open today [Sunday 7th January] between 9 am and 5.30 pm to help people who want to travel on this sailing.

'Our teams are contacting customers already booked to travel or delayed by the storms by text message and phone to advise them of the revised sailing times.'
