Canary Bridge Seaways (CBS): Baleària and Fred. Olsen Express have agreed to operate new routes between the Iberian Peninsula and the Canary Islands.
- When: starting in mid-November.
- What: Two ships, Three connections /week, for passengers, cars and freight.
- Why: the two companies take advantage of the vacuum left by Trasmediterránea as a result of the limits set by the CNMC (National Commission of Markets and Competition) for the merger with Armas. Armas had to give up some routes to be allowed to acquire Trasmediterranea. FRS already started to operate a ferry service between Huelva and the Canary Islands with VOLCAN DEL TEIDE on 7 July 2018.
