Around 400 locals, as well as the Mayor of the island, gathered in the port to inform authorities of Igoumenitsa about their demand. Every year, many tourists visit the scenic small island of the Ionian Sea, but it is difficult for them to get there since the few routes to the island make their journey difficult.
Now, residents and officials of Paxos are asking for at least four ship routes a week. Taking into account that this island attracts many tourists every summer, despite the uncomfortable transport, there is no doubt that all four ships to Paxos island will be full. As for the Kerkyra ship, 13 out of 17 passengers were transferred to the other port of the island, Lakka, with the help of port authorities. Two others dove into the harbor to let the ship reach the port. They were later reprimanded by the Coast Guard and fortunately, everyone is safe. (ANSAmed).
