New operator may re-open Le Havre ferry


A FERRY company is looking at introducing a new passenger service between Portsmouth and Le Havre.
Essex-based KMW Seaways has confirmed that it was looking at the route alongside a freight-only service between Portsmouth and Cherbourg.
Uncertainty still surrounds which ferries might be involved or whether the money is in place but port bosses are cautiously optimistic for the future.
The Le Havre run could be up and running by the late summer with two sailings a day using two chartered vessels.
The firm had been looking at using the Regina Baltica, a ferry which holds 1,500 passengers, for the Le Havre route in a deal which would have cost 12m, but is now believed to be looking elsewhere.
KMW Seaways' 25-year-old boss Kieran Woodbury said the routes were viable, and Lloyds List quotes the routes as worth more than 50m a year.

Apparently KMW applied last year for the run and were unsuccessful so would be interested to find out if this another attempt.
