Red Funnel’s marketing and communications director Jonathan Green said: “The late May Bank Holiday is traditionally busy for foot passenger travel and these additional sailings will ensure we have more than sufficient capacity at the times customers want to travel”.

Red Funnel’s Southampton – East Cowes passenger vehicle ferry service is operating a normal timetable and as usual customers are advised to pre-book online and arrive no more than 60 minutes before departure.
