Cape Verde Fast Ferry Company from the 23rd April, until the end of the frst week in May, will commence a sea service using the Fast Ferry Kriola. The service will connect Santiago and Maio on a twice a week service.
Administrator Nelson Gregor ensures that the company has been authorised by Enapor and the Maritime and Port Institute to operate in this new route. "Given the difficulties in safely moored in Vila do Maio, we are currently putting in place several tyres to absorb shocks in times of mooring and departure of the vessel," says one CVFF manager.
Mr. Gregor notes that the company plans the service for late April, and will serve Maio with at least two regular runnings a week between Santiago and Maio. "The ship Kriola has the ability to carry heavy cargo loads and up to 300 passengers, 164 cabins and on the other foot. If there is enough demand and security and the berthing the vessel at the Port, we can in a next step, make more trips to Maio".
