Compagnia Italiana di Navigazione, the company part of Moby group which controls the former public ferry company Tirrenia, announced that five ropax lines will be closed down from December 1st.
The reason behind this decision is the postponement of the expiring date of the public convention for the maritime continuity with the islands which was approved by law last summer but not formalized yet by the Italian government.
The five lines set to be closed are the following:
- Termoli – Tremiti islands
- Genoa – Olbia – Arbatax
- Naples – Cagliari
- Cagliari – Palermo
- Civitavecchia – Arbatax – Cagliari.
Tirrenia Cin also said that large part of the workforce aboard and onshore is at risk.
