Full sailing schedule guaranteed for the summer and beyond
The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has this morning published their revised conclusions on the matter of Eurotunnel/SeaFrance merger. This follows the judgment of the Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) in December last year, which required the CMA to reconsider their analysis. MyFerryLink is not surprised, that the CMA has maintained the same position as set out in their preliminary findings both in March and May.
We continue fundamentally to disagree with the CMA on a number of critical points. First and foremost we do not consider that the CMA has jurisdiction to review the transaction as a matter of UK merger law. It is also manifestly the case that the CMA's decision, which will reduce choice, is bad for consumers, bad for competition and bad for all those involved in cross-Channel operations (staff, employees, customers and the wider regions in both Dover and Calais).
We will therefore be appealing to the CAT to seek its review of the CMA's revised conclusions in this regard.
Given that any appeal is unlikely to be finally determined until much later this year at the earliest, we would like to reassure our loyal customers that we will continue to operate our full schedule throughout the summer season and beyond.
MyFerryLink operates up to 24 daily crossings on the Dover-Calais route, with high season summer fares starting from £39 each way for a car and up to nine passengers.
