First Ferry is going to extend this initiative to other three ferries (Xin Chao, Xin Fei and Xin Guo) and the installation is expected to be completed by end of 2017. First Ferry is dedicated to providing a breastfeeding-friendly public environment in its constant strive to become a corporate role model in support of this policy, as well as to render further support to the breastfeeding mothers. 

As part of its continued support for the breast-feeding campaign, First Ferry is devoted to taking part in the " Say Yes to Breastfeeding Support for Breastfeeding" campaign initiated by The Hong Kong Committee for UNICEF, in association with the Food and Health Bureau and the Department of Health, and became the first Hong Kong public transport to participate in the campaign.
