The Seine-Maritime Department has confirmed DFDS, the current operator of the Dieppe Newhaven “Transmanche Ferries” route, as the operator until 2027.

Ferry company Brittany Ferries was the other candidate but was not selected.

Ropax ferries SEVEN SISTERS and COTE D’ALBATRE are owned by the region (Syndicat Mixte de Promotion de l’Activité Transmanche) and chartered to DFDS.

In the communication (see French press release on Twitter), a lot of emphasis is put on the values of the French flag against the social dumping on other ferry routes.

Dieppe-Newhaven Hit by Sudden English Quarantine Decision

“For the first time in the history of the route Dieppe-Newhaven, the volumes of August were lower than in July, with 1,000 less cars.”

DFDS decided to lay up one of the two ferries, and to reduce return crossings from 3 to 2.

Jean-Claude Charlo, director DFDS asks the politicians for help, on behalf of all ferry operators.
