Brits stuck with DFDS contract despite Brexit postponement

The Brexit contracts between DFDS and the UK Department of Transport do not take into account the postponement of the UK's exit from the EU, which was adopted Thursday. DFDS could thus still profit from the contracts, reports Børsen.

DFDS' contract with the British government will still come into force a few weeks from now even though Brexit looks set to be postponed, reports Danish business daily Børsen.

On Thursday, the House of Commons voted in favor of trying to postpone Brexit from the otherwise planned deadline, March 29.

The deals were signed to ensure additional capacity on busy routes from the end of March in the case of a no-deal Brexit.
