Numbers are still far off from what Tallink is used to in Q3 in the pre-COVID times.
The company does not foresee great increases in passenger numbers before next spring or summer. Difficult low autumn-winter season ahead.
In light of the need to optimise the company’s activities for the low season ahead and with bookings for the autumn-winter season increasing at a slower pace than expected, the company made the decision to temporarily suspend the operation of its vessels BALTIC QUEEN, SILJA EUROPA and SILJA SERENADE after the end of the Christmas school holidays in January.
SILJA EUROPA will operate some special cruises and charter cruises during the suspension period.
The company will start operating its shuttle vessels Star and Megastar according to the traditional winter schedule from 16 October 2021.
