Condor Ferries has announced a review into the "suitability" and "performance" of the Condor Liberation.

It's been commissioned by the company and the States of Guernsey and States of Jersey.

I hope that this report will help us to draw a line under ill-informed speculation about the ship which is not only damaging Condor Ferries’ business, but could potentially impact our Islands’ reputation.

Condor Ferries provides an important service for our Islands and, despite the difficult start experienced by Condor Liberation, continues to support the islands through its freight and passenger services.”

– Senator Farnham

Whilst we know that our punctuality and reliability performance needs to improve, we also want to give our customers every necessary reassurance regarding the suitability of our ship, and so are pleased to be working with the States of Guernsey and Jersey in commissioning this independent report.”

– Russell Kew, Condor Ferries

The reviewers will be announced in early June.
