CONDOR has chartered a new freight vessel to provide additional capacity on the run up to Christmas and to help the company catch up following a period of stormy weather.
The MV Arrow freight vessel will head to Portsmouth this weekend and will support Condor’s seasonal seven days-per-week freight operation from 28 November to 15 December.
John Napton, chief executive of Condor, said: ‘We know how important Christmas and new year are, not only for passengers, but also for our freight clients who are vital partners as we keep the island’s connected and supplied.’
He added: ‘This is a significant investment on the part of Condor but we’re convinced it’s the right thing to do, as Arrow increases our resilience during the uplift in seasonal demand. The extra capacity provided will also help during this sustained period of adverse weather which has impacted on us over the past four weeks.’
