New Spain ferry route opens
Friday 25 March 2011
A new UK to Spain ferry route will open this weekend.
From Sunday, Brittany Ferries will start a twice-weekly service between Portsmouth and the northern Spanish city of Bilbao.
This is the company's first new port destination in 25 years and will complement its existing service between Portsmouth and another north Spain city - Santander.
Brittany Ferry group passenger commercial director Mike Bevens said, "Bilbao has forged a reputation as a destination in its own right in recent years.
"As the numbers of air travellers from the UK to Spain have declined, we've witnessed a surge in demand for direct UK Spain crossings."
