Extra sailings in demand for Festival of Motorcycling

Increased demand has led to more sailings being added for this year's Festival of Motorcycling.

The Steam Packet has announced it will run extra MV Arrow services during the busy fortnight long festival so more fans can travel on the Ben-my-Chree. 

According to the ferry company overall passenger numbers are up 4,400 - which is an increase of 25 per cent on last year.

The number of motorcycles currently booked to visit the Island is up four per cent while cars, vans and trailers have increased by more than 20 per cent. 

The company says it hopes the additional freight sailings on peak days will free up space for more race fans.
