Interislander adds extra sailings

8:56 pm on 2 March 2011

The Interislander ferry company has added sailings to its weekend schedule after last week's quake.

It says its three ferries have carried almost 400 earthquake personnel, about 180 vehicles and 150 metres of rail freight south.

Interislander say it has experienced an increase in passenger numbers as it helps the Red Cross and Work and Income relocate families who lost their homes in the quake.
