DFDS Seaways Welcomes Malo Seaways To Calais Service

Award-winning ferry operator, DFDS Seaways, has welcomed Malo Seaways to its Dover-Calais service. Her first official sailing on the service left Calais at 13h30 CET on Wednesday, 22 April.

Named in honour of the French coastal city, Malo Les Bains, which is located north of Dunkirk, the new ship brings DFDS Seaways’ Dover-France fleet back up to five ships, following the departure of Dieppe Seaways.

Malo Seaways joins Calais Seaways on DFDS Seaways’ Dover-Calais service, offering freight drivers a comfortable and convenient 90 minute crossing between the UK and France.

Malo Seaways has been newly refurbished and rebranded in the DFDS Seaways colours. There are a range of dedicated freight and commercial driver facilities on board in the Road Kings areas, including a restaurant serving delicious hot meals, a relaxation lounge and shower facilities. There is also an onboard shop stocked with travel favourites and essentials.

The latest addition to the DFDS Seaways passenger and freight fleet of ferries is 169.8 metres long, 24 metres wide and has capacity for around 2,000 lane metres of freight.

Wayne Bullen, Freight Sales Director at DFDS Seaways, commented: “We’re very grateful to the Mayor of Malo Les Bains for allowing us to name our new ship after the city. We know how important our Calais service is to our freight customers and are delighted to be back up to two ships on this route.”

DFDS Seaways sails up to 44 times a day between Dover and France, including up to 20 daily crossings on the Dover-Calais service. These ferry services are designed to provide our customers with flexible crossing times and convenient travel options.
