Sir Ben Ainslie Names New Craft

Following successful trials of Hovertravel’s two new Griffon Hoverwork 12000TD craft,  this Monday (11th July 16) the craft were named at a ceremony with Sir Ben Ainslie as a special guest.  Island Flyer and Solent Flyer, as they are now known, will serve the Southsea-to-Ryde route, replacing the two 30-year-old AP-188 models Freedom 90 and Island express.
