Hovertravel's 50th anniversary launch
Hovertravel officially launch their 50th anniversary celebrations with 5000 seats at only 50 pence.
Hovertravel outlined the plans to make their 50th anniversary a true celebration for all by announcing some of their best ever offers. For the first time ever, Hovertravel has slashed the price of a ticket to 50p for 5000 lucky travellers. Customers can book their 50p tickets online from today.
Hovertravel Managing Director, Neil Chapman said:“We wanted to celebrate our 50th with our customers because if it weren’t for them, we wouldn’t still be here. We’ve got some fun events starting at the end of this month plus some amazing cut-price tickets! ”
Inaugurated in 1965, Hovertravel is celebrating half a century of continuous operation as the fastest ferry service across the Solent. The service is the longest established hovercraft service in the world and the only scheduled passenger service in Europe.
Neil added: 'In 1965, Hovertravel was started with a bold vision to use exciting new technology to speed up transport across the Solent. Over five decades we have faithfully served the communities of Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight as well as attracting customers from around the globe. This great achievement would not have been possible without the dedication of our staff, both past and present, or the support of our customers whose loyalty continues to inspire us today. '
