Cork to Northern Spain Service Update

Cork to Northern Spain Service Update

Wednesday 14 April 2010

Quote from Commercial Manager, Captain Michael McCarthy

 
 
“Since our last email we are continuing dialogue with potential operators and investors and although positive progress is being made we are not in a position to confirm a commencement date.
 
I am very conscious that people have to make their travel arrangements for this summer and I do not wish for you to lose out on early booking deals and be penalised in any way by delaying your decision.
 
We are continuing our effort with further meetings planned for next week 20th/21st April and the 5th/6th May and should we succeed in aligning the interests of investors and operator we could still envisage a start-up in mid- summer.
 
From the interest generated and feedback received from people and importers/exporters who have contacted the Port of Cork, we have succeeded in convincing the potential investors of the viability of the service.  However due to the current economic conditions in Ireland, Spain and Portugal, they are obviously examining every detail of the proposal.  
 
Thank you for your continued interest and support and I will retain your email address and revert when we have further news. I will continue to work on the commencement of this service.”
