P&O Ferry Sails again on most Connections

The troubles at P&O Ferries were tough to miss in the media last few weeks / months:

P&O Ferries has sparked outrage after sacking 800 staff with plans to replace them with cheaper agency workers.

However P&O has resumed most ferry connections

The problems surrounding these huge HR moves by P&O also had a large impact on the connections and on passengers who simply wanted to take the routes from P&O:

  • Hull to Rotterdam (currently resumed again)
  • Dover to Calais (currently you have to rebook to DFDS, which P&O helps you with)
  • Liverpool to Dublin (currently resumed again)
  • Cairnryan to Larne (currently resumed again)

After the 18th of March all connections were impossible to make, now however 3 out of 4 connections are working on schedule again. Only the Dover to Calais connection remains troubled. This however may change soon as P&O has 100% focus on getting these connections up and running again.
