As the countdown to Brexit gets lower, migrants at the famous “Calais Jungle Camp” have got together to launch a new business opportunity.
Claiming to have more operating boats than Seaborne Freight, the service will launch on the final day of March, 2019.
After Seaborne Freight lost the €13.8 million contract to operate between the UK and the EU, the migrants launched their own business which will deal with regular transport across the channel for a fraction of the price of previous boat companies.
Using a “Ryanair” approach to facilities and basic needs, the new boat company hopes to transport up to 10,000 passengers a week across the channel.
French authorities have given the project the go ahead and have encouraged the service with a tax-free offer that is valid for several months during the start up process.
Several of the “Jungle Camp’s” residents were very pleased with the new initiative.
“We have a lot of problems with obtaining transport”, said one resident. “Finally now we can travel across the sea and not be held back by unnecessary Euro Tunnel security measures.”
