Cork-Santander to become Rosslare-Bilbao

[ January 31, 2020   //   ]

Brittany Ferries is to replace its existing Cork-Santander route with one between Rosslare and Bilbao but will maintain its existing service between Cork and Roscoff from 28 February. The line said that its customers sought better road connections and reduced driving distances and while passenger numbers had been encouraging, freight traffic was not sufficiently robust. Like the current Cork-Santander sailings, the new Rosslare-Bilbao sailing will be twice-weekly. All customers already booked on affected sailings from Cork will be given the option to transfer their booking to the new route and a full refund will be provided to those who choose to cancel.
