The new service was officially inaugurated, with president of the Republic of Cyprus, Nicos Anastasiades, the deputy minister of shipping, Vassilis Demetriades, the minister of transport, works and communications, Yiannis Karousos, the Limassol mayor, Nikos Nicolaides, among other officials, attending a special ceremony at DP World Limassol Terminal.
The ferry link, which has been reinstated after 21 years, will carry out 22 return trips from Limassol (Cyprus) to Piraeus (Greece) between June and September of this year, and will be departing from and arriving at the state-of-the-art Cruise Terminal operated by DP World Limassol.
Nawaf Abdulla, CEO, DP World Limassol, said that the company fully backs the government’s new initiative, which will boost Cyprus’ maritime tourism sector. “We are very proud that Limassol port and DP World Limassol Terminal has been chosen as the ferry link’s homeport. It is a testament to the efforts that DP World Limassol and the government have been making to improve the port’s competitiveness and attractiveness,” he added.
