Increased number of departures on the Estonian-Swedish route

DFDS will increase the number of departures on the Estonian-Swedish route

From October 4, the ferry company DFDS will increase the number of departures on the Paldiski-Kapellskär route to almost two daily departures. The Paldiski-Hanko line will be closed due to insufficient capacity and the vessel serving the route Patria Seaways will be directed to supplement the Paldiski-Kapellskär line. DFDS will significantly increase capacity on the freight and passenger route between the ports of Paldiski and Kapellskär in Sweden, increasing the number of weekly departures from 14 to 22.

“The growth trend of freight and passenger transport volumes has remained strong on this route, customers have wanted higher transport volumes and more frequent departures for a long time. I am very pleased to be able to offer this now, increasing the number of departures in both directions to two departures almost every day, ”said Anders Refsgaard, Vice President of DFDS and Head of the Baltic Business Unit.

Additional departures will be served by the cargo and passenger ship Patria Seaways, which will complement the current vessel Sirena Seaways.

The Paldiski-Hanko line will be closed

Patria Seaways, which serves the Paldiski-Hanko route, will be diverted to the Paldiski-Kapellskär route. “Unfortunately, this means that we will stop offering the service between Paldiski and Hanko, as demand and traffic on the route have constantly decreased. Instead, we can offer our Estonian-Finnish route customers transfer on the Tallinn-Helsinki and Muuga-Vuosaari routes, "said Refsgaard. Line restructuring does not affect the number of employees in the company.
