Cross-Channel service Eurotunnel saw passenger traffic figures drop 60% year-on-year last month as the pandemic continues to have a major impact. Its Le Shuttle Freight service transported 122,832 trucks during March. This number is down just 2% on the same month last year.
However, the 38,201 passenger vehicles it carried was 60% down on the year before. The figures for the first three months of the year combined show a 72% drop year-on-year. Travel restrictions have caused major problems for the biggest operators, with Eurostar admitting it is struggling to survive the 95% drop in passenger numbers it has seen for its high-speed rail service.
