The information was revealed in the States of Jersey.

‘As an industry, we are experiencing a very challenging time with no passenger sailings, no income and paying out refunds since March, all of which are having an enormous impact on our business,’ a Condor Ferries spokesman said.

‘Drastic cuts have had to be made throughout to reduce costs and protect the future of the company and this includes taking very difficult decisions in relation to staff on our high-speed vessels.

‘Our policy is not to discuss employment matters with external parties or media and our utmost priority is supporting those colleagues affected.’

Condor has been encouraging people who want to change a booking to move it to an alternative date or accept a credit voucher, which is valid for 18 months.

It is set to start bringing passengers to Guernsey again as part of a trial to impose a seven-day self-isolation period rather than 14, with another seven days of passive follow-up with restricted contact.

Apart from those two sailings, there are no fast sailings scheduled for Guernsey.

Passengers can make non-essential journeys on the slower Commodore Clipper, but there are limited tickets and health restrictions in place.
