MyFerryLink Vindicated With Permission To Continue Its Battle In The Court Of Appeal

Following a hearing in London, MyFerryLink has won permission from the Court of Appeal to take its fight against the CMA’s attempted prohibition remedy to the appeal Court.

Friday’s decision now gives MyFerryLink the opportunity to overturn the earlier decision of the Competition Appeal Tribunal which sought to uphold the Competition and Markets Authority’s (‘CMA’) remittal decision of 27 June 2014, in which the CMA concluded that it did have jurisdiction to review the transaction and sought to ban Groupe Eurotunnel from operating ferry services to and from the port of Dover. The decision to grant permission to appeal reflects the strength of our arguments, in particular to examine why the Tribunal did not see fit to quash the Remittal Decision given the fact that it had found a number of errors in that decision.

A hearing is likely to take place at the Court of Appeal in London before 13 March. In the meantime, MyFerryLink will continue to operate services between Dover and Calais, focusing on delivering excellent service to our customers.
