Finnlines: service improvements for Ireland route

  • Zeebrugge’s berth 106 will be dedicated to the Finnlines Rosslare service (this is the roro berth behind the P&O Ferries building)
  • As from week 45 Finnlines will have their own berth and marshalling area in Zeebrugge.
  • Roro FINNSUN will be replaced by sistership FINNWAVE. The latter has been fitted with an additional pilot door to avoid delays previously experienced at Wandelaar Pilot Station, Zeebrugge. The new door allows the SWATH-pilot vessels to go alongside (instead of having to transfer the pilot from the SWATH by tender).
  • New schedule as from week 45; depart 03:00 Monday instead of 16:00 from Rosslare, a sailing underutilised by the market. This is to facilitate departure at 23:59 every Tuesday from Zeebrugge with arrival 06:00 Thursday in Rosslare. All European production on Monday and Tuesday can therefore be delivered anywhere in Ireland on Thursday. Thursday & Saturday sailings are consistently heavily booked and advance planning is advised.
