DFDS Seaways says “oui” can with updated French website

Date published: 3 October 2011

Dover – France ferry operator, DFDS Seaways (formerly Norfolkline), has launched an updated French language website, www.dfdsseaways.fr

Built on the DFDSSeaways.com template, the site is designed to help French language speakers across Europe access information on the English Channel and other DFDS Seaways routes, as well as book their crossings.

The content management of the site was supervised by Syd Henderson, Online Marketing Manager for the English Channel, with support from Thomas Key, Website Content Manager, and Nadine Corbel, Sales and Marketing Manager, France.

“The French market is very important to us, especially on the English Channel, where we are the only ferry operator sailing to Dunkirk in Northern France,” commented Syd. “The French version of the DFDS Seaways site is the latest in a series of European language sites that we have developed and updated to help make the website accessible to our customers across Europe and the UK.”

 DFDS Seaways sails from Dover – Dunkirk every two hours, seven days a week and crossings take just two hours. For more information about DFDS Seaways, or to find out about the latest sailing times and book tickets, visit www.dfdsseaways.co.uk or telephone 0871 574 7241.
