- The new rail service connects London with Yalova in Turkey, as of 17 May 2022.
- This will shorten transport time between London and Istanbul.
- Twice a week, with two weekly departures in each direction.
- This is the latest in a series of investments that DFDS is making to improve its service; a new unaccompanied freight service from Sheerness to Calais, which can carry over 100 trailers or containers per sailing opened in June last year.
As from 5 July, DFDS will offer a new freight ferry service between Istanbul and Sète (France).
DFDS will offer a total of four sailings between Turkey and France: two to Sète and two to Toulon.
As written in Ferry Shipping News, week 22, the service was operated by Alternative Transport, which decided to stop.
