The high-speed Chenega ferry is now operating between Menorca and Mallorca, providing travellers and commuters with more timetable options.

The new maritime route between the ports of Alcudia (Mallorca) and Ciutadella (Menorca) has been covered since June 1 by the high-speed vessel Fairweather, which has a capacity for 400 passengers, 65 vehicles and roll-on/roll-off cargo. This route will soon be reinforced by its sister ship, the Chenega, which has the same capacity for passengers, vehicles and cargo.

With both ships now operating, there will be more frequent departures for those who wish to travel from Menorca to Mallorca or vice versa in the early hours of the morning. One of the high-speed ferries will spend the night in the port of Ciutadella, and the other in Alcudia, so that they are ready to leave the next morning.

The ferries are run by Menorca Lines, belonging to the Spanish shipping company Trasmapi, which has been operating since the seventies in the Pityusic Islands, in the Balearic Islands. It is the leader in its segment, serving around one million passengers annually on its main route between the ports of Ibiza and Formentera. To book tickets, visit
