The ferry link between Cyprus and Greece begins a new season as the Cypriot flag Daleela embarks on its first journey for 2023.  Wednesday’s journey marks the launch of the ferry link’s second season since its relaunch last summer after more than two decades without a sea route to Greece.  This year’s connection will also include routes from Limassol and Larnaca ports.  Scandro Holdings, the company awarded the contract for the ferry connection, hosted a reception aboard the ship before its first voyage carrying 156 passengers.  Deputy Minister for Shipping Marina Hadjimanolis said that from her first day in office, she had placed the maritime connection high among her priorities.  She was certain of the success of the ferry connection this season, which has already reached 7,000 bookings and is expected to surpass the previous year.  Hadjimanolis said the connection would not be possible without the collaboration of all stakeholders, the Ports Authority, DP World, Sandro Holdings and Limassol Municipality.  Some 22 voyages have been scheduled for this season, 14 will set off from Limassol, and the remaining eight will embark from the Larnaca port, which is included for the first time.  The ship’s last voyage will be conducted on September 1.  Last year, 7,412 passengers travelled with the ferry, taking 2,250 vehicles, of which 1,920 were cars, 330 motorcycles and 300 bicycles.  The Daleela has a capacity of 400 people with 38 first-class cabins for 110 passengers, 68 second-class cabins that can accommodate 180 passengers, 110 seats and a transport capacity of over 300 vehicles.
