The Steam Packet Company is planning to move its Northern Ireland route to Larne.
The Steam Packet Company is planning to move its Northern Ireland route to Larne.

The Island's ferry operator is asking for feedback on plans to relocate its Northern Ireland services.

The Steam Packet Company hopes replacing its Douglas to Belfast route with a Larne service.

The company says Larne can handle bigger vehicles like motorhomes, coaches and freight, which can't be accommodated through Belfast.

The Steam Packet has hired a research company to conduct a survey, and is hoping those who have used the Belfast route will provide feedback.

Larne is around 30 minutes north of Belfast, and is also served by buses, coaches and train services.

The operator confirmed both of its vessels can dock at Larne, and that moving there from Belfast would reduce crossing times.

The survey is available at Island Global Research, and is expected to run for around three weeks.
