Regular Shipping Service Between Turkey And Israel Has Started
23 Nov 2012 Leave a comment
The Turkish shipping company Sisa Shipping started a regular Ro/Ro service between İskenderun Turkey and -wait for it- Haifa Israel this week.
The first voyage of the Ro/Ro Nissos Rodos started on 20th November. According to the Sisa Shipping the voyage will last only 12 hours. This is the first regular shipping service between to the two countries. I guess it is very much understandable why the company uses a chartered Greek ship for this trip.
The timing of the first voyage -during the hostilities between Israel and Gaza- shows that there is a huge gap between the political rhetoric and economical realities.
