DFDS is temporarily suspending sailings on its Newcastle to Amsterdam (IJmuiden) ferry route.

The last sailings on the route before the temporary suspension will be from Amsterdam on Saturday 21 March and from Newcastle on Sunday 22 March.

Passenger capacity will be reduced to 50% on DFDS sailings from Dover to Calais and Dunkirk and Newhaven to Dieppe. There will not be a reduction in sailings, the schedules will remain the same.

DFDS stopped bookings of accompanied units and any other passengers on North Sea routes from Gothenburg to Ghent, Immingham or Zeebrugge.

Units that are normally driver accompanied can of course continue to be shipped, but only on an unaccompanied basis.
