Tallink Grupp has established a subsidiary in Singapore – Tallink Asia Pte Ltd – which is the group’s first subsidiary in Asia.
Its purpose is to simplify the development and expansion of the group’s activities in Asia.
Tallink Asia is headed by Tallink Grupp’s Director of Development Operations, Taavi Tiivel.
“We have always been open about the fact that Tallink Grupp is continuously looking for opportunities to develop our activities and expand into new markets,“ Paavo Nõgene, Tallink Grupp CEO, explained.
Tallink said that it had focused heavily on developing services for Asian passengers in recent years and on promoting the company’s products and services in various Asian countries. For example, Tallink participates annually in a number of large Asian tourism fairs, co-operates with several Asian tourism agencies, employs hosts on board its vessels who speak different Asian languages, and rolled out Asian payment Solutions AliPay and WeChat Pay on board its vessels.
“Tallink has a lot to offer not only here in our Nordic home markets, but globally and there is a significant amount of interest out there in our products and services,“ Nõgene, added. “Our colleagues have done a great job for a long time already, promoting the products and services of Tallink and the wider Baltic Sea region in Asia, thus laying a good foundation to build on from now on. We have plans for activities in Asia, which we cannot unfortunately talk about more today, but which we will shed more light on in the future as the plans progress.“
