"This means we increase the number of weekly departures from nine to ten. I am confident that our customers will appreciate this and see it as a real improvement of our service. Increased frequency has been on their wish list for some time as it will give them more flexibility and enable them to service their customers even better," says Anders Refsgaard, VP and Head of BU Baltic

Additional ferry crossings will be operated till 8 September.
