Baleària paves the way for operation of HYPATIA DE ALEJANDRÍA to Ciutadella
Baleària has inaugurated its LNG-ro-pax HYPATIA DE ALEJANDRÍA on the Barcelona-Alcúdia-Ciutadella line, boosting connections not only between the Spanish peninsular and the Balearic Islands, but as much the Balearic inter-island connections. This move is a great step forward particularly for the island of Menorca, the archipelago's second-largest island with a population of about 90,000. HYPATIA DE ALEJANDRÍA is the largest ro-pax which ever called the Port of Ciutadella at Menorca's western tip, and her inauguration required specific preparation including the acquisition of a tugboat. In order to allow the HYPATIA DE ALEJANDRÍA operating to Ciutadella, Baleària therefore purchased the newbuilt tugboat ROLON PLATA II from Damen Shipyards Group at the end of June.
Search for missing passenger
In the morning of March 22, 2019, a British passenger of the "Hypatia de Alejandria" fell into the sea between Mallorca and Ibiza while the ship was enroute to Palma de Mallorca. Upon the arrival in port it was remarked that the 30 year old man was missing. He had last been seen at 5 a.m. An SAR operation with a helicopter and two SAR boats was launched. Also a helicopter of the Guardia Civil and a French aircraft, which was by chance in the area, joined the search.
