Hearing to decide dispute on the English Channel

Eurotunnel's CEO hopes that a hearing in December regarding the company's dispute on the English Channel with the UK Competition Tribunal Appeal, DFDS, and P&O will validate Eurotunnel's ferry activities. 

A hearing on September 10 and 11 concerning Eurotunnel's entry as owner of ferry company MyFerryLink on the English Channel, in direct competition with DFDS and British P&O will hopefully decide whether the Eurotunnel initiative is legal.

The UK Competition Commission has banned Eurotunnel's ferry company from calling in the Brtish Port of Dover, referring to the fact that Eurotunnel's total market share on the Channel becomes too big, and thus violates the rules of competition. The French competitive authoritiy has previously validated Eurotunnel and its ferry company MyFerryLink, which was establised on the basis of bankrupt SeaFrance.
