Ferry Shipping News visited Port of Piraeus a few weeks ago and met with Theodora Riga, Strategic Planning and Marketing Manager of the port. We talked about the passenger and ferry traffic. With 15.5 million passengers per year, Piraeus has Europe’s biggest passenger volumes.
Mrs Riga explained about the coastal ferry traffic.
Coastal ferry shipping is mainly influenced by the economic situation in Greece. That affects the movement of passengers and cargo to and from the islands, and to a lesser but growing extent, by the volume of tourists.
