Book your BRITTANY FERRIES ferry with NetFerry
Founded in 1972, Brittany Ferries is the trading name of the French shipping company BAI Bretagne Angleterre Irlande S.A. They operate a fleet of ferries and cruises between France and the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Spain, and between the United Kingdom and Spain.
The company was set up as a joint venture between a pig farmer, Alexis Gourvennec, and a group of fellow farmers who wanted to export their cauliflowers and artichokes to the U.K. The company was initially known as ‘Armement Bretagne-Angleterre-Irelande’ and the Breton farming groups who founded the company remain the principal shareholders to this day.
In 2017 Brittany Ferries transported 2.57 million passengers, 885,000 cars and almost 211,000 freight vehicles. They currently have a fleet of 12 ships in service, and they have plans to add more vessels. Brittany Ferries will be launching a new LNG powered ship called ‘Honfleur’ this year, and it will serve the popular Portsmouth-Caen route.
