In 2017, the Administrative Court of Bastia condemned the Collectivity of Corsica to pay €84.3 million to Corsica Ferries. It is a compensation for the so-called “complementary service”. This was an illegal financial system which was given to SNCM, as compensation for the extra passengers in high season, on top of the DSP contract.

Corsica Ferries’ request to enforce this 2017 judgment was rejected on Monday 2 March 2020 by the Marseille Administrative Court of Appeal.

Compensation will eventually be paid by the Collectivity of Corsica to Corsica Ferries, but apparently the judge decided there was no rush.
