More St Malo sailings promised

Thursday 27 October 2022


Condor's 2023 timetable has been "designed to bring travel confidence back to the island after the pandemic", the ferry firm has said.

Published below, the 2023 schedules feature the Cherbourg route, as well as more St Malo sailings than were available last year.

Condor announces new timetable for 2023

Some of the St Malo sailings are direct, and some go via Jersey.

Condor says the 2023 timetable aims to provide travel for islanders, while supporting the local visitor economy and "builds on the success of sailings from the UK last Summer".

The increase in St Malo sailings for Spring 2023, compared to 2022, is said to include "non-sailing days" across the network that will be available to be used in contingency plans in case of weather disruption.

The timetable also continues with direct services to Poole, with some services via Jersey too.

There appears to be a very limited number of short same day return trips available to Jersey. These are bookable through lunch time departures from Guernsey and evening returns from Jersey.

John Napton, Condor’s CEO, said the timetable has been designed to "bring travel confidence back to the Island after the pandemic".

"This year, our schedule contributed to a successful summer for the local tourism and hospitality industries and that would not have been possible with our previous timetable," he said.

"We have consulted with groups such as the Guernsey Hospitality Association, Guernsey Tourism Partnership and Visit Guernsey and tried, wherever possible, to accommodate the Island’s sporting, motor and other events, including the Island Games next year."

Alan Sillett, President of the Guernsey Hospitality Association, agreed that their views have been listened to in a very brief statement.

"The GHA is appreciative of Condor for listening to the concerns of our members and for working with us as one of its many stakeholders."
