DFDS increases sailings on Estonia – Sweden route

From 4 October, there will be two daily departures on Paldiski – Kapellskär nearly every day. Patria Seaways will be moved to the route from the Paldiski – Hanko route, which will be closed due to unsatisfactory volumes.

DFDS Patria Seawys DFDS is increasing capacity and customer service significantly on our freight and passenger ferry route between Paldiski in Estonia and Kapellskär in Sweden from 4 October. This means that the number of departures will increase from 14 per week to 22. “The trend in freight and passenger volumes remains strong on the route, and for a long time, our customers have requested more capacity and higher frequency. I am really pleased that we can now offer this with two daily departures in each direction nearly every day,” says Anders Refsgaard, Vice President and Head of DFDS’ Baltic operations. The extra sailings will be performed by the freight and passenger ferry Patria Seaways, assisting Sirena Seaways, the current ferry on the route.

Paldiski – Hanko to close Patria Seaways will be moved to Paldiski – Kapellskär from the Paldiski – Hanko route. “Unfortunately, this means that we will close the service between Paldiski and Hanko, where there has been a steady decline in demand and volumes. Instead, we can offer our Finland – Estonia customers transport on the Tallinn – Helsinki and Muuga – Vuosaari routes,” says Anders. The changes will not affect staff numbers.
