Stena Line is to enter the Finnish market with a new daily route connecting Hanko in Finland and Nynäshamn, near Stockholm.
The new route is the next step in Stena Line’s ambition to further strengthen its position in the Baltic Sea, the company said.
Starting with one ferry next February, the new route will be served by two vessels with daily departures from each port as of May, 2022.
”With our new daily route between Hanko and Nynäshamn, we heavily expand and strengthen our position in the Baltic Sea. Growing with our customers, we are investing in the new service to accommodate the increasing demand of our freight customers for seamless transports in the Baltic Sea and beyond.
“By extending our network to Finland, we further improve and expand the most comprehensive, efficient, and integrated ferry network in northern Europe,” said Niclas Mårtensson, Stena Line CEO.
The new route between Hanko and Nynäshamn is due to start on 1st February, 2022 and will be served by the ‘Urd’ three times per week. A second vessel, ‘Stena Gothica’, will join the route on 1st May, 2022.
Dedicated freight ropaxes, the vessels have a capacity of 1,600 lane meters and 186 pax. They add up to Stena Line´s latest investments in the Baltic Sea area, including the deployment of two long newly built E-Flexers on the route Nynäshamn/Ventspils and the large capacity improvement on Karlskrona/Gdynia route with the recently lengthened ‘Stena Scandica’ and ‘Stena Baltica’.
