CONDOR and Brittany Ferries have launched a joint initiative to offer Islanders discounted fares on the French company’s network to Spain and Ireland.

The new pricing scheme follows a promise made by Condor’s and Brittany Ferries’ chief executive, Christophe Mathieu, last month that the two companies would start to work more closely together.

The announcement of discounted fares was made as officials from Danish shipping company DFDS met Islanders yesterday ahead of lodging a rival bid to run a Channel Islands ferry service from next year.

Under the new scheme, Condor passengers can save up to 30% off Brittany Ferries’ routes to destinations including Santander and Bilbao in Spain and Rosslare in Ireland.

Mr Mathieu said: ‘This is a very good example of how our two companies can co-operate and we are delighted to open the extensive Brittany Ferries’ timetable and network to Channel Islanders.

‘We believe this could also benefit inbound tourism, as we will offer a reduction for visitors to travel on Condor’s services to Jersey and Guernsey from these destinations this summer.’

Barfleur – a large passenger and freight ship operated by Brittany Ferries – was due to undergo berthing trials in Guernsey today, after similar trials were carried out in Jersey last month.

The offer – valid until 31 October – applies to Condor customers with future bookings or for those looking to make a new reservation.
