Continued Disruption of Ferry Services Due to High Winds on Wednesday

February 9, 2022

ATHENS – Gale-force winds of up to 9 Beaufort in the central and south Aegean continued to disrupt ferry services on Wednesday, leading to the cancellation of morning ferries from Piraeus. Ferry journeys to the Saronic Gulf were operating as normal.

Ferries have also been forbidden to sail from the port of Lavrio, while only ferries to the Cyclades islands have been cancelled at the port of Rafina.

Normal services have resumed elsewhere.

Passengers intending to travel are advised to first contact the local port authorities or travel agents before setting out in order to check for changes in ferry routes and departure times due to the bad weather.

Meanwhile, the passenger-car ferry “Nissos Rodos” collided with the dock in the port of Heraklion on Wednesday morning while attempting to dock, causing minor damage to the bow above the water line. None of the 88 passengers on board were injured and were able to disembark safely.

The ship, which was on the Pireaus-Heraklion route, has been forbidden to sail until it receives a certificate of seaworthiness.
