P&O Boost to Cairnryan

P&O HAVE delivered another massive boost to their Cairnryan to Larne route. They have ordered a second £35 million fast conventional ferry from a Japanese yard – a sister ship to the European Causeway which came into service earlier this year.

She is due on the route in May 2002, bringing the total P&O fleet locally to six. That has boosted the company’s investment on the North Channel to £85 million in the past 18 months And to reinforce that message, P&O Ferries Chairman Graeme Dunlop said:

"Larne to Cairnryan is one of P&Os key Irish Sea routes".

And he added

"We have already invested more than £50 million in this route over the past 18 months and we are demonstrating our commitment by ordering another fast conventional ferry to replace older tonnage."
