(17 June 2019) Hovertravel has helped the returning Isle of Wight Festival visitors return home even quicker today. By running 100% more additional services starting with an extra service at 6am, the customers were flown back across the Solent in double-quick time.
Loretta Lale, Head of Commercial at Hovertravel, explains: “With a journey time twice as fast as any other cross-Solent ferry we have the ability to add services to our timetable to handle increases in demand. So today we ran twice as many crossings as normal and with almost every craft full, we have kept a steady flow of customers moving off the Island.”
The festival goers appreciated the quick crossing and fun atmosphere at Hovertravel’s Ryde terminal, smiling and waving even after a hectic weekend of partying.
