The Port Authority of Huelva presents its new Route 1400 at the stand of State Ports at FITUR

The Port of Huelva occupies an outstanding position in the Spanish port system in terms of its connectivity with the Canary Islands, as it has four weekly connections, three of them with ro-pax ferry type vessels and one with a container ship, being the leader in ro-ro traffic and, most notably, in passenger traffic, having connected 50,000 national and foreign passengers during this year 2021, far exceeding the pre-pandemic traffic data of 2019.

As a node of the European Atlantic Corridor, the Port of Huelva is the official oceanic link of the Trans-European Transport Network with the Canary Islands.

For this reason, the Port of Huelva has launched the “Route1400 Huelva-Canary Islands”, presented at Fitur, with the aim of promoting this maritime connectivity as an experience of quality, efficiency, and environmental sustainability, which places the customer at the centre of all its efforts.

“Route1400 Huelva-Canary Islands” is born under the unity of interests and the integration of all the services of the port community and the different actors that make up the entire logistics chain, and already has, among its partners, Naviera Armas, Alisios Shipping and Baleària & Fred Olsen Express at the head.

At FITUR, “Route1400 Huelva-Canary Islands” was focused on passenger tourism, who choose maritime transport as another part of their experience when they travel around Europe and the Iberian Peninsula with their vehicles (caravans, cars and motorbikes), and who decide to make Huelva their environment and their port of embarkation to the Canary Islands.
