he “Tetuán” will link Alicante with Tenerife and Las Palmas every week

Moreover, the modification of one of the shipping company’s routes gives a direct service from Valencia to Fuerteventura

Boluda Lines, the division of Boluda Corporación Marítima in charge of goods transport, has improved the service it gives the Canary Islands with the incorporation of a new ship, the “Tetuán”. This container ship has a capacity of 450 TEUs and will increase communication possibilities between the archipelago and the mainland, linking the ports of Alicante and those of Tenerife and Las Palmas on a weekly basis.

This new route is added to the four regular lines already established by Boluda to connect the islands with mainland Spain. The Northern line now links Bilbao-Marín-Algeciras-Tenerife-Las Palmas-Algeciras. The Southern line links Sevilla-Las Palmas-Tenerife-Arrecife, while the Mediterranean route connects Alicante-Barcelona-Valencia-Tenerife-Las Palmas-Arrecife-Tenerife-La Palma.

Moreover, the shipping company has modified the international line that connects Italy to the Mediterranean and the islands. Genoa and Livorno will be linked to Valencia and the latter in its turn directly to Tenerife, Las Palmas, and Fuerteventura. For the first time, the port of Fuerteventura has a direct service to Valencia for both local and feeder cargo, which means less waiting time and a greater business turnover for the island.

With these five connections Boluda Lines ensures that the Canary Islands archipelago is linked to the outside world, and at the same time it offers its clients an efficient, competitive, and quality system that addresses users’ needs. Boluda Corporación Marítima has been working in the islands since 1997, which is when the company took over Naviera Pinillos.
