Regina fills a gap - 14/10/2014

Regina Line said it would start a passenger and freight run with a vessel called Regina next spring.

DFDS dropped the loss-making service between Harwich and Ebsjerg on Sunday.

The start-up said it was not a "large company with many unnecessary employees" and could offer low ticket prices.

Passenger numbers on the route fell from 300,000 a year at their peak to 80,000.

On its website, Regina said: "Our goal is to transfer each year 200,000 passengers, 32,000 vehicles and 12,000 trailers/trucks."
