- Sweden-Finland is key route for generating duty free sales . Traffic fall of 2.5%. Reason is the BALTIC PRINCESS which was out of service for 68 days in Q1, for maintenance.
- Estonia-Finland is busiest route (5.1 million pax). Increased competition = pressure on ticket prices. A new ferry has been ordered to join the MEGASTAR on the route in 2021.
