Writing on the wall for MyFerryLink?

[ September 18, 2014   //   ]


Eurotunnel Group said it “regretted” the position taken by the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA)’s final order, in which it rejected all its observations in its dispute over its MyFerryLink ro ro subsidiary. The Tunnel operator said that its position confirmed its “unalterable determination of the CMA to bring to an end the activities of MyFerryLink.”

Eurotunnel has continued to operate its MyFerryLink subsidary between Dover and Calais pending the outcome of an appeal which will be heard on 24- 25 November.

n a statement, the MyFerryLink company itself said: “We continue to believe that the CMA does not have jurisdiction to review the transaction as a matter of UK law and, as a result, we continue to fight our case before the Competition Appeal Tribunal. Services would meanwhile continue as normal, it added.
