- Increase in passenger numbers, but a decrease in carried cargo units.
- Passenger numbers increased the most on the Tallinn-Stockholm route by 77% compared to Q1 2022 when BALTIC QUEEN operations were temporarily suspended due to travel restrictions, and on the Tallinn-Helsinki route by nearly 47% with greater route capacity this year with three shuttles operating on the route during the quarter.
- The number of cargo units transported decreased compared to last year due to several of the company’s vessels being chartered out.
- The most significant reduction in carried cargo units is evident on the Finland-Sweden routes and is the result of the chartering out of the company’s Turku-Stockholm route vessel GALAXY and the technical dockings of the company’s Finland-Sweden routes’ vessels SILJA SERENADE, SILJA SYMPHONY and BALTIC PRINCESS all during Q1 2023.
