DFDS crowned Europe’s leading ferry operator for sixth year running

DFDS has been named “Europe’s Leading Ferry Operator” for the sixth year in a row at the World Travel Awards Europe ceremony.

It beat four rival ferry operators to the award, which recognises excellence in the travel and tourism industry, after the public and travel industry professionals from 57 European countries had their say.

Pete Akerman, DFDS marketing director, said: “We are delighted to have once again won the approval of our guests and travel industry partners to claim the titles as Europe’s Leading Ferry Operator for a record sixth consecutive time.

“I would like to thank all of our employees, who have worked so hard to provide excellent customer service to our guests and make travelling by ferry with DFDS an enjoyable and relaxing experience. From those who are front-of-house on board, to those working behind the scenes, it’s been a real team effort to retain this title.”

The World Travel Awards was established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the tourism industry. This year’s European Gala Ceremony took place in St Petersburg.

DFDS operates a comprehensive passenger route network, which incorporates four routes from the UK to Europe, via Dover-Dunkirk, Dover-Calais, Newhaven-Dieppe and Newcastle-Amsterdam, offering passengers a gateway to Europe.

It also operates a number of passenger ferry routes across the Baltic Sea, including a cruise ferry service between Copenhagen and Oslo.
