Helsinki-Riga route to be tested by Tallink

Estonian ferry and cruise company Tallink is testing this week the interest of passengers to take a cruise trip from Helsinki to Riga.

Estonian public broadcaster ERR reports that AS Tallink Grupp’s sales and marketing director, Margus Hunt, explained to BNS on Wednesday, July 26: «The first journey is scheduled for the end of the week, and ticket sales indicate a keen interest in the route. Like the Visby route has great demand during the summer period, there are also people who want to take advantage of the opportunity to visit Riga».

Speaking about the prospects to maintain the Helsinki-Riga route, the Tallink representative said: «At the same time, we also believe that there is no market for a permanent route. It has to be taken into account that the trip doesn’t allow for passengers to unload their cars in Riga, basically passengers are able to park their cars on the ship for convenience».
