After 22 years since it was abandoned in Cyprus, this June ferry services are set to commence again between Limassol and Athens.
Cypriot authorities have said that they will give out the details of the preferred bidder for the once very successful ferry line at a later date with more details as they have them.
“The tender review process among the three finalist bidders has been completed,” said the deputy ministry.
“The preferred bidder is expected to submit final contractual documents within a few days,” it went on to say.
The returning service is set to depart from Limassol again and transport passengers and vehicles to the Athens port, Piraeus.
The Deputy Shipping Minister of Cyprus, Vassilios Demetriades announced reviving the ferry service will be extremely beneficial to the relationship between the countries and building more connections in the Mediterranean.
“Reviving the ferry connection will help us to continue building our relationship with the rest of the Mediterranean and we welcome the opportunity to expand the ferry link to a third neighbouring country beyond Greece too,” said Mr Demetriades.
