Both ROMANTIKA and VICTORIA I, chartered by Tanger MED Port Authority from Tallink Grupp, are being deployed on the Tanger Med – Tarragona – Sète route in order to offer a maritime bridge between Europa and Africa.

The operation, called ‘Paso del Estrecho’ and organized every summer by Morocco, should have called also an Italian port (Genoa) but this is not the case. GNV is remaining the only player active on that route.

Local media in Spain reported that Intershipping, the ferry company which is operating and selling the service, was trying to open a second link from Tanger Med to the Portuguese port of Portimão but also this route seems to be hard to be launched.
