Passenger Figures Down 23 June 2004

Passenger figures compiled by the Harbours Division for May 2004 at 61,185 show a 23.2% decrease on the figure for the same period in 2003 which was 79,676.

The year to date figure at 195,409 passengers shows a 10.3% decrease over the same period in 2003 which was 217,789.

During May car traffic through Douglas Harbour decreased by 40.4% from 25,204 vehicles to 15,007 vehicles.

The year to date figure at 51,697 vehicles shows a 18.1% decrease over the same period in 2003 which was 63,127. Scheduled Routes show the following changes in passenger numbers for May:

  • Belfast, down 47% from 4,406 to 2,325
  • Dublin, down 11% from 2,285 to 2,043
  • Heysham, down 34% from 28,738 to 18,914
  • Liverpool, down 15% from 38,794 to 32,445

Director of Harbours, Captain Michael Brew commented:

"May 2004 passenger figures reflect the fact that the TT period fell in June this year. Allowing for the impact of the later TT, May figures are reasonable with the underlying trend in line with last year’s figures. The current foot passenger special offer fare of £10 single will provide even more opportunities for people to travel by sea.”
