Coronavirus and travel restrictions imposed by Norway and Denmark created a drastic decline in travel bookings on the Stena Line Oslo – Frederikshavn route. On Thursday 19 March the decision was made to permanently close the route after more than 40 years in operation.

The decision means Stena Line will close their office in Oslo which will affect 30 shore-based employees.

The 1981-built ferry STENA SAGA is currently in lay up in its port of registry, Gothenburg.
