BC, Tallinn, 10.07.2020.Print version
Listed Estonian shipper Tallink Grupp announced on Thursday that the company’s recently acquired ro-pax vessel Sailor will start operating on the Paldiski-Kapellskar route with three weekly departures, writes LETA/BNS.

The first Sailor departure is scheduled already for this Sunday, July 12, leaving from the port of Paldiski at 9 p.m. local Estonian time. The vessel will start operation on the route with Paavo Koplas and Urmas Orussaar as the ship's masters, Tallink said.

Currently, the company’s vessels Regal Star and Isabelle have been operating on the only route now open between Estonia and Sweden.

Alongside Sailor, the company’s vessel Regal Star will also continue to operate on the Paldiski-Kapellskar route according to new schedule.

The vessel Isabelle, which has been operating on the Paldiski-Kapellskar route since the beginning of June, will be rerouted to a new Paldiski-Stockholm route, starting from this Sunday, July 12, until the end of August 2020.  According to current plans, Isabelle will continue to strengthen the capacity for cargo transportation of the Tallink fleet until the end of August.

"The crisis has taught us that we must strategically increase our capacity for cargo transportation. Adding Sailor to the Paldiski-Kapellskar route just as the new route to connect Paldiski and Stockholm will allow us to offer our customers more flexibility in terms of more departures and destinations," Kadri Land, member of the management board of Tallink Grupp, said.
