Packet flies flag for Ferry Fortnight

Campaign targets first time ferry travellers

The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company is teaming up with Manx National Heritage to promote the Island during National Ferry Fortnight 2016.

The British Isles-wide initiative is aimed at promoting travel by sea.

This year's campaign from 5 - 19 March will bring together 12 ferry firms which operate routes to and from the British Isles.

Under the slogan ‘Be a Ferry First-Timer’ the Packet will use the campaign to attract people who have never visited the Isle of Man before.

The Steam Packet Company has created a special offer in conjunction with MNH which is only available for bookings made during National Ferry Fortnight.
