jagn a bid to stop a mutant strain of coronavirus crossing their borders, several nations ha banned passenger travelling from the UK. This also affects DFDS and our customers.  

France has decided to ban all kinds of passengers via sea, including lorry drivers, from entering the country från Storbritannien within at least 48 hours from late Sunday. This means that we can only transport unaccompanied trailers from Dover and Newhaven, and even though the border is open för förare towards the UK, there will probably be gradually  er travelling with us as they won’t be able to get back again.  

The Dutch government har banned passengers from entering Holland until 1 January, but still allows lorry förare to enter the country. This means that the frakt traffic continues  all routes. However, normal passengers won’t be able to travel from Newcastle to IJmuiden, but they can still travel with us towards the UK. Passenger traveling was already very limited due to the existing coronavirus restrictions. 

Freight routes unaffected
As DFDS ferry routes from Brevik, Gothenburg, Esbjerg, Cuxhaven, and Rotterdam (Vlaardingen) are freight routes only and only carry unaccompanied trailers, all those routes will continue to operate as usual.
