Hovertravel extra services appreciated by Great South Run runners

Great South Run runners and spectators alike have been expressing their thanks to Hovertravel for adding extra early services to their timetable. Hovertravel added four services to their normal Sunday schedule today, starting 30 minutes earlier than usual at 08:15 and running every 15 minutes until 09:45.

Loretta Lale, Head of Commercial at Hovertravel, explains: ”We worked very closely with the organisers of the Great South Run to make sure we co-ordinated our timetable with their participants’ need to get to the start line punctually. As the closest cross-Solent operator to this event we were keen to help entrants and their supporters get to the event with time to spare. Obviously our ten minute crossing is also a major advantage.”

Hovertravel’s services were very popular with their customers who commented ‘thank you for starting early today’ and ‘we are really grateful to you and your staff for getting up early to help us’.
