 Steam Packet figures hit again by TT Cancellation

Steam Packet figures dropped dramatically in June as the impact of the cancellation of the TT hit home. Passenger traffic fell by 45.6 per cent, from 109,423 last June to 59,542. Vehicle traffic was down 60 per cent on 2000, with just 15,096 cars and bikes crossing the Irish Sea.

Director of harbours Captain Mike Brew said the cancellation of the TT hit May's figures but was even more apparent in June. But he said: 'Excluding the TT, the underlying trend, however, remains positive, with passenger traffic outside the race period increasing by 5.5 per cent.'
