Sousa Group Ends Ferry Service Next Year

The Vice President of the Regional Government confirms today that ENM (Sousa Group Company) terminated their ferry contract two months ago. The letter of termination was sent by the Maritime Shipping Company to the Regional Government on September 20, two days before the regional elections, with the Madeiran operator saying that it cannot continue to bear the losses for the summer ferry service.

Sources say that both the Sousa Group and the regional government have given up on trying to run such an unprofitable operation, and that the Madeiran government is waiting to see if António Costa’s Government fulfils its promise to finance an all-year-round ferry connection to the island.
