Almost two million pax for Bornholmslinjen

By | 2024 Newsletter week 03 | No Comments

2023 was a record year for Bornholmslinjen, with the highest number of passengers and cars ever traveling to and from Bornholm. [Danish press release]

  • Passengers: a total of 1,993,966 pax were recorded, nearly 46,000 more than the previous record year in 2022.
  • Cars: 583,943, more than 10,000 more cars than in the previous record year in 2022.
  • Trucks: 45,345, slightly fewer than the previous year due to the impact of the global economy on freight volumes to Bornholm.

Jesper Skovgaard, Molslinjen’s Commercial Director, anticipates that they will soon reach the magical two million ferry passengers to Bornholm, especially when the high-speed ferry, EXPRESS 5, is fully utilized (in 2023 the ferry was only in service in the second half of the year)

2024 will be the year when ferry capacity to Bornholm can be fully utilized. The marshalling areas in Rønne will be expanded, as they have already been in Ystad.

Bornholm charters previous ship

By | 2023 Newsletter week 11 | No Comments

From 11 to 27 April, Bornholmslinjen will charter the STENA VINGA to cover the dry-dock of the HAMMERSHUS.

 STENA VINGA was built for the Bornholm route as HAMMERODDE.  She sailed for the previous operator of the tendered service (Bornholmstrafikken/BornholmerFærgen) until Molslinjen’s Bornsholmslinjen took over in 2018.

Due to her previous long operation on the route, it is known that the vessel is suitable and fits the berths/ports.

The only difference in daily routine will be that STENA VINGA will depart from Rønne at 16:00 instead of 17:00. This will give extra time at Køge to load.  ‘Vinga has an additional upper vehicle deck.

Although officially allocated to the Göteborg – Frederikshavn route, STENA VINGA has operated on almost every current Stena Line route as a cover vessel.
