On June 15, 2020 BLUE STAR PATMOS left Valletta for Greece.
After a 4-month stay at Palumbo Shipyards, the “blue” ship came back fully repaired and with scrubbers installed.
She arrived there in early March. However, Covid-19 had significantly extended her stay at the Maltese shipyard.

BLUE STAR PATMOS is expected to be introduced on the afternoon Paronaxia route (Piraeus-Paros-Naxos-Santorini) from 2/7 to 7/9, with an extension to Evdilos (Ikaria) and Karlovasi (Samos), 3 times a week.

On 28 January 2020, BLUE STAR MYCONOS, ex- NISSOS MYKONOS of HSW returned in service with a new name and livery. The ship replaced her sister NISSOS CHIOS on the North East Aegean lines, which also renamed BLUE STAR CHIOS and change into the Blue Star Ferries livery.

BLUE STAR CHIOS entered service on 4 February 2020, replacing BLUE STAR PATMOS which will sail for her scrubber conversion in Malta.

The ex-HSW’s sisters have been incorporated by the Blue Star Ferries following a decision of the ATTICA Group, as they mainly operate on Blue Star Ferries routes and share the same fleet design. The two popular ferries will soon undergo a scrubber conversion in Malta (Palumbo Shipyards).
