Some internet postings point to the possibility that regional airlines are lobbying to prevent the activity of Cartagena-Colombia Ferry, which would pose serious competition.
The company Panamerican Seaway announced at the beginning of the year that that the ferry would start functioning in May making its 12-hour journey which would link the port of Colon with the terminal of Cartagena.
A shipping vessel owned by Panamerican Seaways with capacity for 1,500 passengers and 500 cars, will begin travelling in May between Cartagena de Indias in Colombia and Colon in Panama.
Despite the fact that it was announced in July that the business would be restructured to make it viable, the company which connects Cartagena port with Colon will not be providing the service in 2016.
Panamanian authorities have presented a project to a Spanish shipping company to establish a maritime connection between Colon and Cartagena.
