In 2010, more than two and a half million passengers travelled on the yellow boats of Corsica Ferries between the French or Italian mainland and Corsica, again strengthening its place as leading sea carrier for Corsica since 2001.
The firm has come a long way since 1968, when Pascal P. Lota, a native of Bastia, founded the shipping line. Since then, the company has continually developed. Following on from the first crossings to Italy, came others to France, and the yellow boats gradually became synonymous with comfort and quality of service.
Corsica Ferries today runs eleven lines between Corsica and mainland Europe. During the summer of 2011, it will be running up to 15 return journeys per day!
Corsica Ferries is very involved in cultural, arts and crafts and sporting life in Corsica by supporting many events. Today it is proud to be a sponsor of the Critérium International which will take place in Corsica, in Porto-Vecchio, for the second year in a row, and will finally bring a major cycling race to the Island of Beauty navigating alongside the greatest cycling champions!
