DFDS continues collaboration with P&O – has room for extra traffic

More departures may be DFDS’ answer to P&O Ferries’ sudden halt of sailings on the English Channel for up to ten days. Despite political turmoil for P&O, DFDS continues its cooperation with the DP World-owned carrier, which Thursday sacked 800 employees.
