A new ferry route that will link all the Ionian islands for the first time will be inaugurated on May 1 and run until October 31.

Shipping Minister Panagiotis Kouroumblis announced the new ferry service at the Regional Development Conference of the Ionian islands, noting that “the linking of the Ionian islands will be a new reality that will put an end to the isolation between islands belonging to the same region”.

The new sea routes will be plied by High Speed Azimut Joy Cruises. The 30-metre vessel can carry up to 260 passengers.

The new ferry journey will link Corfu with Paxi, Lefkada, Ithaca, Kefalonia and Zakynthos every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and vice versa on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
