Tallink had a good month in August. Compared to last year, passengers and freight went up. The Group transported 980,234 passengers (+1.9%), 30,659 cargo units (+14.5%).
The number of passenger cars went down 7.8%, on the routes Finland-Estonia, and Finland-Sweden. On Helsinki-Tallinn Tallink introduced the ro-pax newbuilding MEGASTAR end of January, whilst competitor Viking Line chartered the high-speed catamaran VIKING XPRS for the same route.
The route Latvia-Sweden saw an impressive growth (pax +76.4%, cars +27.9%, freight +141.9%), totally due to the introduction of a second ferry, ROMANTIKA.
