Viking Line has registered its ropax ‘Viking XPRS’ in the Finnish Register of Ships.
The vessel, which began operations in 2008, has been registered in Estonia since 2014.
This decision was made in order to make it easier to recruit staff and enable the company to administer all of its staff without any intermediaries, Viking explained.
All of the reflagging work will be completed during the first quarter of this year.
Viking Line has begun the process of filling all the positions on board ‘Viking XPRS’ under the Finnish flag with a few exceptions.
Employees who were working on board the vessel (about 175 people) and those from the company’s other vessels that sail under the Finnish flag were able to submit applications.
