New owner for Wightlink Ferries

Wightlink Ferries which operates between the Isle of Wight and the UK mainland has been sold.

Balfour Beatty Infrastructure Partners LP has bought the company from Macquarie European Infrastructure Fund for an undisclosed sum.

Wightlink said there would be no changes to staffing, pricing, routes or schedules, but the
Rail, Maritime and Transport union said it would “seek assurances” there would be no threat to jobs.

Wightlink’s chief executive Russell Kew said the company had a “secure future”.
