If Brexit invites, Roscoff is right to be cautious in the short term, though good results allow it to invest. Passenger traffic jumped in Normandy last year.
The dark years seem behind Brittany ferries. After a plan to return to competitiveness in 2013, the company based in Roscoff (Finistère) displays a passenger activity increased for the fourth year (2,676,500 passengers, up 3% compared to 2015). The Le Havre-Portsmouth records 11.5% increase; Cherbourg-Poole, 11.6%; Cherbourg-Portsmouth, 31.1% (+ 33.8% for passenger cars)!
This “despite a loss of attractiveness of France in the UK market,” illustrated by a 2.2% decrease from the Channel market. The cargo also increased: + 6.7%, with a total of 204,000 trucks transported in 2016. Including 20% increase on routes between England to Spain,“confirming the relevance of the roadway of the sea developed since 2010 “. With 454.9 million euros, sales of the Brittany Ferries is up 5.2%.
