Eurotunnel confirms DFDS deal

On Thursday, July 2nd, DFDS will take over the two controversial ferries from Eurotunnel, set to operate on Dover-Calais in the English Channel. A French union has warned of protests due to layoffs.

MyFerryLink, part of Eurotunnel, confirms the deal that DFDS will take over the two ferries Rodin and Berlioz. The transaction is a bareboat charter agreement which means that DFDS will lease the ships without crew, says Eurotunnel in a statement. DFDS will lease the ships per July 2nd 2015.

"Today, the French Court has recognised that the bareboat charter agreements with the SCOP SeaFrance, agreements which expire on 1 July, cannot be renewed or prolonged," says Eurotunnel in a statement.
