A new ferry route will link all the Ionian islands for the first time. It will be inaugurated on May 1, 2018 and run through October 31, 2018.

Shipping Minister Panagiotis Kouroumblis introduced the new ferry service at Regional Development Conference of the Ionian islands, and noted that the linking of the Ionian islands would be a new reality that would "put an end to the isolation between islands belonging to the same region”.

High Speed Azimut Joy Cruises will serve the new routes. The 30-metre ship can carry up to 260 guests.
