Essential traffic regards travel for work and other travel defined by the authorities. The company recommends that all passengers familiarize themselves with the instructions issued by the authorities before travelling. The restrictions are in effect until May 31, 2020.

Four of Viking Line’s seven vessels will continue their service between Finland and Sweden, the Åland Islands and Estonia.

People will be able to continue travelling as usual between the Finnish mainland and Åland. The new regulations enter into effect on May 14, 2020.

We believe that trips to our destinations and, above all, to and through the Baltic Sea archipelagos will experience a renaissance

said Jan Hanses, president and CEO of Viking Line.

He added that the company is now collaborating with the authorities in charge to make sure that all forms of travel are carried out in a safe and secure manner.

It is extremely important to maintain vital social functions by allowing essential service between these countries. We look forward to resuming our normal service with the hope that this can take place in time for our peak summer season
