According to the Greek press the much-awaited Thessaloniki — Mytilene — Izmir line will be introduced September 15. The so-called “friendship line” is Levante Ferries’ first attempt to operate in the international services.
The luxurious SMYRNA DI LEVANTE (former KOPERNIK/1977), has already passed successfully all the necessary inspections, while all the custom procedures between the two countries have been completed.
SMYRNA DI LEVANTE will offer 200 cabins and space for 930 passengers and 60 trucks. She will ply at 18 knots covering the distance in 12-14 hours. The ship is planned to carry both passengers and freight in order to be profitable, performing three sailing per week.
