Corsica Ferries

In the last 40 years Corsica Ferries became the leading private ferry company for trips to Corsica and Sardinia.

In 1968 Pascal P. Lota from Bastia founded the ferry company and named it Corsica Line. The ferry Corsica Express (600 passengers and 60 vehicles) was the first ship to sail between Corsica and Italy. From 1968 to 1981 the ferry company Corsica Ferries developed its first market: the passage between Italy and Corsica.

The company grew and step by step the yellow ships became a synonym for comfort and quality. With the acquisition of the Italian company TTE Sardinia Ferries joined to Corsica Ferries. Now the company can also offer routes between Sardinia and Italy. The ship "Sardinia Nova" was the first yellow ferry to connect Livorno and Olbia. In 1987 the fleet was supplemented by the "Sardinia Vera". In 1996 the fast ferry Corsica Express opened the route Nice-Corsica. The fast ferries made it possible to enter into the market of crossings between the French mainland and Corsica. Such a fast ferry was also used between Italy and Sardinia.

In 2001 the Mega Express Ferries were introduced which made various new routes possible: between Toulon and the ports of Ajacco, Calvi, Ile Rouse and Bastia. In 2004 of all ferry companies Corsica Ferries carried most of the passengers to Corsica. 2004 was also the year when the flag ship of the company, the Mega Express III was put into operation on the route to Sardinia. In 2006 Mega Express IV was added. In the meantime Corsica Ferries has welcomed more than 3 million passengers, about 2/3 of them on the route to Corsica and 1/3 on the route to Sardinia. In 2007 Mega Express V was bought and redesigned during 2007 and 2008. In addition, in 2008 the Mega Smeralda was put into operation as the new beauty of the fleet.
