On 3 July 2020, the European Commission gave the green light for the establishment of a ferry service between Cyprus and Greece.

Earlier this week (39), Cyprus’ Deputy Minister of Shipping Vassilis Demetriades said that the goal of establishing a Piraeus – Limassol (or Larnaca) ferry link next May is achievable.

A tender will be launched in October. Candidates will have 2 months to study the proposals.

The ropax ferry should have a capacity for at least 200 passengers and cabins. Crossing should take 16 hours maximum. An intermediate stop in a Greek island is a possibility.

As soon as Ferry Shipping News has information about the tender, you’ll find it here and in our weekly newsletter.
