Red Funnel keeps friends & family connected on the Isle of Wight this Christmas Day

(16 December 2019) Red Funnel is continuing to demonstrate its commitment to keeping the Isle of Wight connected 365 days a year. For yet another consecutive year, the company is set to be the only ferry operator sailing the Solent on Christmas Day.

Red Osprey will depart Southampton at 09:00 and 12:00 and return from East Cowes at 10:30 and 13:30.

Red Funnel has also added 18 extra daily crossings (9 each way) on its Hi-Speed foot passenger Red Jet service between West Cowes and Southampton on every Sunday leading up to Christmas, making it easier to sort last minute Christmas shopping and indulge in the delights of the season.

Fran Collins, CEO at Red Funnel, said: “I’m very pleased that we offer the only cross-Solent vehicle service on Christmas Day. It’s a tradition we are delighted to continue as part of our commitment to ensuring the mainland and Island stay connected every day of the year. Our hardworking staff and crew are a testament to Red Funnel’s dedication to providing an excellent level of service all year round; they are once again going the extra mile this Christmas to keep our ferries sailing and our customers feeling festive.”
