GRIMALDI DEPLOYS THE VESSEL IGOUMENITSA ON THE DAILY SERVICE BETWEEN SOUTHERN ITALY AND GREECE
Naples, 27 April 2022: The Grimaldi Group will deploy the vessel Igoumenitsa on the daily ro-pax line Brindisi-Igoumenitsa. The ship is already in the Greek port, ready to sail this evening towards the Italian shore of the Adriatic. The Igoumenitsa will replace the ship Florencia, temporarily deployed on the line, improving the service offered to the Group's customers in terms of both transport capacity and comfort on board.

The Italian-flagged vessel Igoumenitsa can carry about 800 passengers and 3,120 linear meters of rolling freight (cars, vans, trucks, semi-trailers, etc.). She has 191 cabins (for a total of 459 beds) of various types (inside, oceanview and superior-class), all with en suite facilities and air conditioning, some of which are equipped for passengers with reduced mobility. With the purchase of a special pet kit, all cabins can also accommodate pets traveling in tow. Other services and facilities offered to passengers include a lounge with 320 comfortable reclining seats, a self-service restaurant, a bar, a shop and a children's play area.

With the introduction of the Igoumenitsa, the Grimaldi Group carries out a significant upgrade of the service currently offered on the Brindisi-Igoumenitsa line, with 1,100 more linear meters dedicated to cargo and about 100 more cabins (and 70 beds) available to passengers and drivers. In addition, the latter will enjoy the voyage and relax in even larger common areas, such as the bar and the self-service restaurant.

Finally, innovative technologies reduce the environmental impact to the ship's operations: these include the optimized propulsion system with innovative blade profile and the exhaust gas cleaning system that reduces sulphur and particulate emission.

The Igoumenitsa will depart every day from Brindisi at 1.00 pm and arrive in Igoumenitsa at 9.30 pm. Departures from the Greek port will be at 11.59 pm, with arrival at the Italian port at 9.00 am the following day.

In addition to the Brindisi-Igoumenitsa line, the Grimaldi Group operates the Ancona-Igoumenitsa and Ancona-Patras routes for the transport of freight and passengers between Italy and Greece. The company also runs the Venice-Bari-Patras service, dedicated exclusively to the transport of rolling freight.
