Extra freight ship chartered for TT

Thu, 24 May 2012

Over the next fortnight, the Island is expecting one of the biggest influxes of motorbikes in the last decade.

More than 11,200 motorbikes are booked to travel here for the TT festival.

In the last 10 years, that figure has only been topped by the Centenary TT in 2007.

The Isle of Man Steam Packet has chartered in a extra freight ship called the MV Arrow to help with increased demand at peak times.

An additional passenger vessel has already been chartered from P&O Express, allowing the company to accommodate an extra 46,000 people on the ferries.
