DFDS Seaways deal could lead to more Newcastle ferry services

Date: 08 Jun 2009 00:00 Source: Port of Tyne

DFDS Seaways and the Port of Tyne have announced a new agreement which could lead to more ferry operators launching services from Newcastle.

It was confirmed that DFDS Seaways had agreed to transfer responsibility for quayside operations, as well as nine staff, to the Port of Tyne.

The deal allows the port to dedicate more resources to improving passenger experience and operations at Newcastle ferry port, while DFDS Seaways can concentrate on its Newcastle to Amsterdam ferry route and its onboard service.

Andrew Moffatt, chief executive of the Port of Tyne, said: "We provide a valuable service for the region with an estimated contribution of around £50 million to the economy in the form of visitor spending.

"We have invested heavily in the development of the Port of Tyne international passenger terminal and the transfer of quayside operations in May has put us in a much stronger position to attract new business."

In addition to its Amsterdam ferry service, DFDS Seaways offers a travel option for people planning to visit Scandinavia with its ferries from Harwich to Esbjerg in Denmark.
