WITH the expectation that travel restrictions between Ireland and Britain will be removed soon, Stena Line is bringing Stena Estrid back to its key Holyhead-Dublin route.
It will replace the smaller Stena Horizon which will return to its former role serving Rosslare-Cherbourg.
The ships had swapped due to freight demand on routes to France and low volumes between Holyhead and Dublin. The end of lockdowns have resulted in freight volumes increasing again, so the company needs to switch the vessels back to their pre-lockdown roles.
Stena Estrid will provide two daily return crossings each way between Holyhead and Dublin.
