P&O Ferries Update on situation at Calais



IN an update for customers on the situation at Calais, Janette Bell, Commercial Director at P&O Ferries, said: "We are aware of the Foreign Office advice that cross-Channel customers should check with their operator before travelling and would like to make clear that the port of Calais is at present safe and open for business."

"P&O Ferries’ customers at the port of Calais have thankfully not been affected by the well-publicized problems which we have seen at Eurotunnel. Traffic on the slip roads can access the port freely, cars and lorries queue safely and efficiently in a secure area, and there is no point at which illegal migrants come into contact with our passengers."

"We would like to reassure all tourist and freight customers travelling to the continent that P&O Ferries' services will make 58 sailings today to or from Calais and that the port is safe. If the situation were to change for any reason, we would of course inform them immediately."

P&O Ferries is a leading pan-European ferry operator, sailing on nine major routes between Britain, France, Ireland, Holland and Belgium. The company operates 20 vessels which carry more than 10 million passengers, 1.6 million cars and two million freight units every year.
