A technical issue has forced the cancellation of all services on Hovertravel’s Ryde-Southsea route this morning (Wednesday).
It’s the second time in 2 days that the cross-Solent operation has ground to a halt due to technical problems with the Flyer craft.
Provisions have been made for those planning on travelling via Hovercraft today to use Wightlink’s FastCat service instead.
An update is expected at 09:00 but it is unclear at this stage if services are likely to resume at that time.
UPDATE @ 09:15 – Services have now resumed from Ryde, with the next crossing from Southsea at 09:30.
It’s understood that Hovertravel are operating with just 1 craft as Island Flyer is undergoing works at Griffon Hoverwork in Southampton.
