First ferry from Cyprus to Greece After 21 Years Sails From DP World Limassol Terminal

Ro-Ro passenger ship MV DALEELA sailed from DP World Limassol port on Sunday, 19 June 2022, on its first round-trip to Greece, officially launching a ferry link, which aims to boost Cyprus’ connectivity with mainland Europe.

 

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 2022 and will be departing from and arriving at the state-of-the-art Cruise Terminal operated by DP World Limassol.

 

DP World Limassol’s CEO, Mr Nawaf Abdulla said 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.

 

“I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate everyone who worked hard to make this endeavour a reality, establishing a sea link between the two countries after 21 years. We firmly believe that the new service will be extremely beneficial for the country, as it will not only provide Cypriots with competitive connectivity to Greece, but it will also help promote maritime tourism between Cyprus and Europe”, Mr Abdulla pointed out.
