Condor Liberation sailings resume after weekend of disruption

Condor Liberation sailings resume after weekend of disruption

A fast ferry put out of action by steering problems returned to service today.

Condor Ferries’ trimaran, Liberation, which serves Guernsey, Jersey, has not operated since Friday due to technical problems affecting its steering modules.

Another of the company's cross-channel ferries - Commodore Clipper - returned to service earlier after a ramp failure on Friday left dozens of cars trapped.

Some passengers had to wait 12 hours to disembark following the mechanical failure at Portsmouth.

People travelling between the UK and the islands suffered a weekend of disruption while both vessels underwent repairs.

Bookings via the company’s website have also been unavailable since Sunday night due to “essential system changes”. Online bookings were due to resume at midday today.

Condor executive chairman, Russell Kew, apologised to customers over the weekend and thanked them for their understanding and patience.
