Irish Ferries Challenges Passenger Compensation Ruling

Irish Ferries has brought a High Court challenge over a finding that it must pay compensation to thousands of passengers affected by the cancellation of sailings between Ireland and France last summer.

The company says it had to cancel the services because a new ferry it had ordered, the WB Yeats, to operate the service between Dublin and Cherbourg was delayed for several months.

The challenge has been brought against the National Transport Authority’s decision in January that arising out of the cancellations the company breached EU regulations concerning the rights of passengers travelling by sea.
