Turyol joins our Turkish ferry network

We are pleased to introduce a new Turkish ferry operator, Turyol, who offers many weekly services between Cesme and Ayvalik in Turkey to the Greek Islands of Chios and Lesbos.

Turyol is one of the country’s most well-known and respected ferry operator, transporting tens of thousands of passengers each year, and 66% of the people sailings from Ayvalik to Lesbos.

Today, with a fleet of sixty ships, all spanning forty-two metres long and running on double engines, Turyol carries a daily average of forty thousand passengers to Lesbos. Moreover, in June 2016, the company introduced the fastest available sailing from Cesme to Chios, using two vessels called Chios and Necdet Ali Yildirim, boasting a total capacity of six hundred and seventy foot passengers and forty vehicles. Each ferry at Turyol’s disposal has been approved by the national maritime audit committees, while also abiding by international safety rules.
