Aiming to continue its Rafina–Syros ferry connection all year round, shipping company Golden Star Ferries has submitted a request with the Coastal Transportation Council for the said link but also for the continuation of the Rafina-Syros-Tinos-Mykonos itinerary through to October 31.
In the meantime, the Rafina-Syros route will operate throughout the year with the trip lasting less than two hours.
Golden Star Ferries expressed its commitment to continue its Rafina-Syros service all year round during a meeting on Tuesday with Syros-Ermoupolis Mayor George Maragos.
The decision is expected after the Coastal Transportation Council convenes this week at the shipping ministry.
Maragos added that if both routes are approved then Syros will benefit greatly from being linked with the country’s second largest port as well as with neighboring islands.
