Ferry operator Stena Line has forecasted a rise in passenger numbers on its dutchflyer rail and sail service, thanks to improvements pledged by the new operator responsible for rail services in East Anglia, Abellio-owned Greater Anglia.
dutchflyer travel includes rail services to Harwich International Port from London Liverpool Street and stations in Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire, which were taken over by Greater Anglia last month, followed by a Stena Line crossing to the Hook of Holland and onward rail travel to any Dutch station (with Nederlandse Spoorwegen), within one ticket.
Stena Line operates twice-daily six-hour return crossings between Harwich and the Hook of Holland, with dutchflyer fares starting from £34 per person return from Harwich or £39 one-way from any Greater Anglia station (including onwards rail travel to any Dutch station).

Every year more than 500,000 people cross the North Sea between the UK and Holland with Stena Line, the largest ferry operator in Europe and one of the largest in the world. In 2010 Stena Line introduced two newly-built passenger-freight Superferries on the route, representing an investment of £375m. In the UK alone Stena Line, which operates Europe?s most comprehensive route networks, offers twice daily return crossings on its Harwich to Hook of Holland route as well as over 30 daily crossings on its various routes to Ireland providing fast and efficient crossings with excellent onboard services and facilities.
