Stena Line has posted a 6.5% year on year increase in the number of cars it carried across the Irish Sea in the month of July.

The July performance has rounded off a strong first six months for the leading ferry operator which also recorded a 3% increase in car volumes from January to June. Each year Stena Line carries approximately 2.2 million passengers, 614,000 cars and 732,000 freight units across its Irish Sea routes.

Orla Noonan, Stena Line’s Head of Travel (Irish Sea) commented: “Traditionally July is a very busy month for us across the Irish Sea as we enter our peak season but to post a 6.5% year on year increase in our car volumes pays tribute to the quality of the service we operate.”

“It’s encouraging to note that our July performance outstrips the UK and Ireland ferry industry as whole.”
