P&O Ferries Re-flagging Under Cyprus Flag

P&O Ferries have announced that in advance of Britain leaving the European Union (EU) on March 29, the company has undertaken a review of the flag status of their ships on the English Channel.

For operational and accounting reasons, P&O Ferries have concluded that the best course of action is to re-flag all ships to be under the Cyprus flag.

The Cyprus flag is on the 'white list' of both the Paris and Tokyo memoranda of understanding, resulting in fewer inspections and delays, and will result in significantly more favourable tonnage tax arrangements as the ships will be flagged in an EU member state.

The company has no plans to make any other changes, including the terms and conditions of any of our seafarers, as a result of the new arrangements.

the ships on the English Channel of P&O Ferries are Spirit of Britain, Spirit of France, Pride of Canterbury, Pride of Kent, Pride of Burgundy and European Seaway.
