CERTIFICATION ENABLES VIKING LINE PASSENGER SERVICES TO RESUME IN JULY

Wednesday, June 24, 2020 

Ro-pax operator Viking Line says that as of 2 July, all seven of its vessels will be back in use for passenger traffic, with 'Amorella' and the LNG-fuelled 'Viking Grace' sailing the Turku–Åland–Stockholm route, 'Gabriella' the Helsinki–Åland route, 'Rosella' the Mariehamn–Kapellskär route, while 'Cinderella’ will operate between Stockholm and Mariehamn as well as cruises between Stockholm and Visby during August and September.

When the pandemic hit this spring, temporarily limiting travel, Viking Line used its ships to help ensure Finland’s security of supply by transporting essential goods.

Kaj Takolander, VP Sales and Marketing, said: "The past few months have been highly active in terms of freight traffic. We believe that passenger traffic will start to pick up rapidly now as well. We have gone to great lengths to ensure that cruise travel is as safe as possible for everyone. For example, our Pre-order service is clearly rising in popularity. It enables customers to order their onboard purchases in advance to be delivered safely either directly to their car or to the ship’s pick-up location. Additionally, passengers also have the possibility to take advantage of our convenient Room Service and order, for example, lunch to be delivered to their own cabin."

The number of passengers is currently limited and thorough measures are being carried out as a means of safeguarding hygiene. DNV GLs has verified all Viking Line ships and terminals in accordance with the My Care methodology, proving that Viking Line has the certified ability to manage and prevent the risk of infections such as Covid-19. Viking Line is the first shipping company to have received this recognition from DNV GL.
