Due to heavy tourist demand on our domestic GB to Northern Ireland routes we willl be operating a new temporary weekend service between Holyhead and Belfast, starting on Friday 25 June. The extra capacity on the new route from Holyhead will be available until Sunday 18 July.
Stena Estrid will again demonstrate her flexibility and operate the service which will accommodate a mix of freight and leisure traffic, with an estimated crossing time of approximately 8 hours.
We are currently experiencing very high demand on our Belfast routes to Cairnryan and Liverpool so the addition of the temporary service will provide much needed additional capacity to and from Northern Ireland.
The current travel restrictions between Britain and Ireland have created a lot of pent-up travel demand so hopefully the addition of this new route will help provide another option for people visiting friends, relatives or taking a break as well as being an attractive option for our freight customers.
