Major shippers operating between Tallinn and Helsinki are predicting a rapid increase in travel from Finland to Estonia.
Tallink Silja CEO Margus Schults said that tickets to Tallinn had been available for sale since the beginning of June, but now the company had the opportunity to actively market them as well.
Viking Line has likewise been selling tickets to Tallinn since the beginning of the month. Demand thus far has been low, but constantly increasing, CEO Jan Hanses said.
Eckero Line CEO Taru Keronen also said that demand was likely going to start quickly improving. Eckero is to begin operating a Vuosaari-Muuga route for passengers with vehicles again.
The Finnish government decided to allow tourism travel to Estonia and other nearby countries again, with the exception of Sweden, from June 15. Travel will be open from Finland to the Baltic States, Denmark, Norway and Iceland again without the requirement to quarantine after the trip. (ERR/Business World Magazine)
