Wightlink has been shortlisted for the title ‘Ferry Operator of the Year’ at the National Transport Awards, reflecting the company’s £45million investment in its Portsmouth-Fishbourne route.

Kirsty Walton, on behalf of the judges, says: “This year we received a great deal of entries from across the UK for all categories. As usual, the quality of these entries were extremely high and therefore has resulted in fierce competition for a place on the shortlist.”

Wightlink Chief Executive Keith Greenfield adds: “We are delighted to be shortlisted for this national honour. It is a tribute to the achievements of everyone involved with our extensive port infrastructure works at Portsmouth and Fishbourne and the successful introduction of our new hybrid flagship Victoria of Wight on this route.

“In addition, this recognises the hard work carried out every day by colleagues on all our routes and at our ports to deliver excellent customer care for people who travel with us.”

The 19th Annual National Transport Awards celebrate successful national and local transport projects. Transport companies and organisations have shown the judges the tangible results they have achieved, improving the experience for their users and ultimately adding to the successful development of the nation’s transport infrastructure.

The winners will be announced on October 31 at the 2019 National Transport Awards final in London.
