Passengers upset over yet another delay with inter-island ferry

More reports of problems at the port of Port-of-Spain as passengers scheduled to sail this morning have been told their vessel will now sail tonight.

It’s the latest in a series of delays and inconveniences that have plagued inter-island travel recently.

This has been compounded by the problems with the transport of cargo and the move by intercontinental shipping to pull its ship, the Super Fast Galicia, out of service.

Inter-island cargo vessel 'Super Fast Galicia' to stop sailing on Good Friday

This country has lost the use of its only designated inter-island cargo ferry, the Super Fast Galicia. The Super Fast Galicia’s last day of sailing will take place on Good Friday (April 14) before it is returned to its owner, Trasmed.

Works and Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan yesterday confirmed that the country was served two weeks notice that Trasmed would be terminating the contract with respect to the Super Fast Galicia.

Trasmed has already included the Super Fast Galicia in its schedule from as early as next month.
