News - Travel 17-Mar-2022
For those with upcoming Disneyland Paris packages booked with a P&O ferry soon, P&O Ferries (via Sky News) has announced 800 redundancies and cancellation of all crossings over the next few days.
P&O Ferries has made 800 of its staff redundant, effective immediately, and cancelled all its services for the next few days - warning of "significant disruption" - to plug a £100m year on year black hole in the company's finances.
The company said these staff will be served with "enhanced" severance packages, calling it a "necessary decision" to protect its remaining 2,200 staff.
It said the business is "not viable" in its current state.
P&O warned there would be "significant disruption across P&O Ferries services over the next few days. If travelling on their Dover/Calais route please arrive at the port as booked and they will arrange to get you away on an alternative carrier as quickly as possible.
