Wightlink’s managers will be out and about meeting customers and listening to their views again in 2020.

This year, they will be engaging directly with commuters and other frequent travellers as they cross the Solent. Managers from several departments will be based on car ferries on the Portsmouth-Fishbourne and Lymington-Yarmouth routes, ready to chat with customers over a cup of tea or coffee. Non-landing foot passenger tickets will be available for people who would like to meet them but were not planning to take a ferry that day. The managers will also spend time at Portsmouth Harbour FastCat terminal.

Wightlink also hosts Customer Forum meetings at Fishbourne and Yarmouth twice yearly. For more information, contact karenwoods@wightlink.co.uk.

PLEASE NOTE, ALL OF WIGHTLINK’S CUSTOMER CONSULTATION SESSIONS HAVE BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, DUE TO THE CURRENT CORONAVIRUS SITUATION.

Wightlink Chief Executive Keith Greenfield says: “I frequently cross the Solent on our vessels and always enjoy meeting customers and finding out what they think about our services. While anyone can share their views with us at any time by emailing feedback@wightlink.co.uk, we also value these opportunities to chat with our customers in person.”
