Oslo - Frederikshavn - Copenhagen starts on 2 July
Oslo – Frederikshavn – Copenhagen route will resume sailings on 2 July for Pearl Seaways and 3 July for Crown Seaways.
After many months of suspension due to travel restrictions, DFDS is excited to finally share that our Oslo – Frederikshavn – Copenhagen route will resume on 2 July for Pearl Seaways and 3 July for Crown Seaways.
Kim Heiberg, Route Director, says: “Back in April, we communicated our hope to resume sailings on 7 June, but because of ongoing travel restrictions we once again have to postpone until the start of July. Yet, that must not overshadow the good news. As reopening and vaccination plans are progressing in a positive direction, we are setting all sails to ensure that we can start up on 2 July out of Copenhagen and 3 July out of Oslo.“
During June, Pearl Seaways and Crown Seaways will continue their lay-up period. Crew members and shore-based staff will continue to be on the government’s aid package until they are called back to prepare for the reopening of the route.
“It is great to see light at the end of the tunnel. I am really looking forward to welcoming all back. I know that our colleagues are very eager to get back to work and return to a notion of normalcy and so am I. Let us give our passengers a great summer on board.”
