CONDOR ‘has to deliver more’ the Chamber of Commerce president has said after the ferry company released its long-awaited comprehensive service review.
In a stinging rebuke to the review – which concluded that no second fast ferry would be bought for the northern route, and a dedicated inter-island service can only operate with government subsidy – Martyn Dorey said the company had to step up to the plate and provide the Channel Islands with a far more robust and effective service.
He was among a number of review critics to speak out yesterday.
Economic Development president Peter Ferbrache was also critical about Condor’s conclusions over a second fast ferry.
Commenting on the reasons given by Condor in its review as to why it would not be pumping millions into another fast ferry – that UK to Channel Island passenger numbers would have to double in order to provide a return on investment – Mr Dorey said the operator had to assume a level of risk.
