DFDS is adding two weekly departures from both ports to the schedule to offer customers increased flexibility. Sailing times are reduced by up to an hour.

In spite of the Covid-19 situation, ferry services between Lithuania and Sweden continue servicing our customers without entry restrictions for freight units and lorry drivers, and from 1 October, DFDS is adding two weekly sailings to our schedule between Klaipeda and Karlshamn.

“The number one topic for customers of ferry freight services is always increased frequency, and this is even more true for DFDS’ Klaipeda-Karlshamn route. And the two extra departures we are now introducing from both ports will bring our customers more flexibility to plan their exports and transports at a time when we all need support to bring our businesses through the Covid-19 crisis in the best possible way,” says Per-Henrik Persson, Route Director.

The extra sailings will take place on Saturday and Sunday and bring the number of weekly departures up to 11 per week. In addition, sailing time has been reduced by an hour in general. See the new schedule here.

The extra Saturday sailings have already started, and the new schedule will be fully implemented from 1 October.

The ships serving the route are Victoria Seaways, Optima Seaways, Finlandia Seaways and Ark Futura and there are stringent measures on board to prevent virus spread.
