Due to the continued Covid-19 situation, demand for our Newhaven Dieppe service has also reduced. We will therefore temporarily adjust our schedule by reducing our frequency.
We will continue sailing in order to service our freight customers and drivers as well as travelers with an essential transport need. A new reduced schedule will start from Saturday with less sailings in mornings and weekends. Our staff, crews, works council and union representatives together with SMPAT have all been informed of these changes.
Kasper Moos, VP & Head of DFDS’ Short Routes and Passenger business, says: “Our Newhaven – Dieppe service will continue to operate despite the reduced demand as it is critical we support our freight customers in order to maintain the supply chains and are available to those undertaking essential travel.
“And again a huge thank you, from myself and the whole management team, to everyone for taking care of our customers so well and each other throughout these extremely difficult weeks. We can’t wait to be back again to normal schedule as soon as travel restrictions have been lifted,” says Kasper.
