Almost 90 % of Fjord Line’s revenues disappeared when the borders were closed. After a record year with 1.5 million passengers Fjord Line had to ask the Norwegian State for help, to get over the pandemic.
The state’s cash support scheme, installment deferrals and powerful cost measures ensure that the company can continue its ambitions for the coming years.
Rickard Ternblom is grateful for the support of the authorities, the suppliers and the employees. How the most important season -summer- will look like is unclear. “Regardless, we will get through 2020 and be ready for a more normal year in 2021. We are now on a more secure ground,” says Ternblom.
