In 2021, in the difficult context of the health crisis, the Group managed to preserve its fundamental values through strong financial discipline, allowing it to protect its cash flow. The development of new digital services for all freight and passenger customers has allowed us to strengthen our leadership position while preparing for the future. Our good operational performances, our good quality of service and the very long-term Concession of the Channel Tunnel until 2086, once again demonstrate the effectiveness and resilience of its business model.

In 2022, the Group will continue its momentum as well as its concrete actions in terms of CSR. And on 25 May, Getlink has achieved the entry into operational and commercial operations of the electricity interconnector ElecLink, which marks the start of a new business for the Group.

The Getlink SE share, GET, is listed on Euronext Paris.

In 2022, Getlink is:

  • A group which is performing and competitive, despite the health crisis
  • A customer-orientated-group
  • A group respectful of the environment
  • An innovative group with a definite focus on digitalisation
  • A group sustainably anchored at the heart of dynamic regions.
