Victorious Bank Holiday success for Hovertravel

With the award-winning three-day event just steps away from their Southsea terminal, Hovertravel had their busiest ever Victorious Festival over the August bank holiday weekend.

From 2230, services operated from Southsea every 30 minutes until 0030 on each night of the event. All the additional services were fully booked, creating a busy, fun post-party atmosphere in the terminals.

Loretta Lale, head of commercial at Hovertravel, said: “We have been adding extra services late into the night to help the festival guests return to the Isle of Wight, once the music stops. By adding five extra services on Friday, Saturday and Sunday we provided the closest and fastest way home from Victorious.

“Hovertravel’s team of committed staff, including the people not seen such as the engineers, stay late to make these late-night services possible and we all appreciated the gratitude shown by our customers over the weekend.”

Lale added: “Hovertravel is able to offer extra services for major events such as the Isle of Wight Festival, Victorious and the Great South Run because we have the operational flexibility to add in more crossings very quickly.”
