On August 9, 2021 the former AZORES EXPRESS of Hellenic Med Ferries performed her sea trials under the Seajets ownership. She was purchased at the end of July and renamed AQUA STAR. According to the information she will be probably introduced within the next few days temporarily on the Lavrio – Agios Efstratios – Lemnos – Kavala line.
Hellenic Med Ferries submitted an application to the Greek Ministry of Shipping for the annual introduction of its ferry AZORES EXPRESS, to the Agios Konstantinos (Volos) – Sporades islands line.
After a long repair period in Perama, the veteran will eventually have her chance to prove her value in the Greek waters.
A positive answer to that application means that the line will be upgraded by a vessel that will offer a larger capacity as well as much better service.
