There has been a setback with the arrival of the fast ferry, The APT James.
The vessel, which was due to arrive in Trinidad and Tobago at this month’s end, will now be arriving in January 2021.
The National Infrastructure Development Company (NIDCO), in a statement on its social media page, revealed that the APT James docked at Las Palmas, Canary Islands on Friday, December 25th.
They said the change from the last stop of Cape Verde to Las Palmas was as a result of the unavailability of bunkering services during the holiday period in Cape Verde.
NIDCO said this last stop at Las Palmas, Canary Islands, marks the last stop in the vessel’s journey to T&T, with 2,900 nautical miles left in its voyage.
The estimated arrival date of the vessel has been revised to the first week in January 2021, good weather permitting.
