FRS Iberia Ceases Operations On Some Routes
The cessation of operations for both shipping lines is attributed to the current state of the COVID pandemic in Europe and North Africa, which has caused a significant decrease in passenger traffic and thus loss of operating revenue.
Following the recent launch of the fast ferry “Levante Jet” in October on the Ceuta-Algeciras line, the FRS Iberia will reorient its strategic position towards its routes maintained in the Strait of Gibraltar, focusing extensively ongoing efforts to reestablish maritime connections with Morocco.
From solar-powered excursion ships and fast ferries to cargo ferries, the FRS fleet is globally diverse. Today, the fleet comprises 71 ships carrying 7.9 million passengers and 2.1 million cars worldwide annually and operates on numerous national and international ferry and catamaran routes in Europe, North Africa, and North America. On the Strait of Gibraltar, FRS is one of the leading operators with 7 vessels, ranging from passenger-only catamarans to RoPax ferries. In addition to tourist services, FRS has successfully operated a scheduled traffic and cargo service between Spain and Morocco for over 20 years. Learn more about FRS at www.frs.world.
