Channel tunnel operator Eurotunnel announced Thursday it will end its partnership with MyFerryLink in shuttling travellers between France and Britain by sea, amid looming legal challenges.
Eurotunnel said it would not renew contracts expiring on July 2 under which it leased three ferries it had acquired in 2012 from bankrupt maritime transporter SeaFrance to MyFerryLink for its Dover to Calais service.
Under the liquidation agreement, Eurotunnel bought SeaLink's assets and leased them to a cooperative of employee-owners of the re-baptised MyFerryLink line operating under an appointed management team.
But potential legal challenges to MyFerryLink's 200-plus weekly crossings led Eurotunnel to renounce the activity despite recent favourable court rulings.
