The rural municipality of Saaremaa is to investigate the interest of five shipping companies in establishing a ferry connection between Saaremaa and Latvia, the regional newspaper Saarte Haal said, cites LETA/BNS.

The rural municipality filed a query to Lindaliin, TS Laevad, Tallink Grupp, Kihnu Veeteed and Saaremaa Laevakompanii and expects a reply by Dec. 1.


The query sent to the shippers is part of the preliminary study into the possibility of a Latvian ferry route. According to the contract for services signed between the NGO Saarte Koostookogu and OU Arenguruum, the survey is to be completed by the middle of December. The compiler of the preliminary study said that the future of the route first and foremost depends on the interest of ferry operators.


Representatives of OU Arenguruum and Montu port this week in Latvia are to meet with representatives of the ports of Riga and Ventspils and the authorities of the city of Ventspils.
