CLdN will operate a bi-weekly service that connects Liverpool (UK) and Dublin (Republic of Ireland) with Santander in Spain.

CLdN recently announced additional sailings on the UK and Irish routes out of Zeebrugge, Belgium, as HLPFI reported here.

The ro-ro operator said it is now taking the “next step” by increasing capacity and frequency on its Iberian service.

The new service is a merger of the individual services to Liverpool and Dublin that CLdN currently operates. As the company is an Authorised Economic Operator (AEO), CLdN said it is now able to combine intra EU and non-EU sailings and is therefore re-introducing the triangle trade: Santander-Liverpool-Dublin-Santander.

A spokesperson for CLdN said: “Driven by the success of our youngest unaccompanied routes from the Iberian Peninsula directly to the UK and Ireland, the market can benefit from increased capacity and frequency shortly.”
