As the demand for the ferry service is rapidly increasing, the company Stena Line is developing and enhancing its services by modifying ferry timetables and introducing an additional ferry. The company is elaborating a new business concept focusing on Northern Baltic Sea region development, which will strengthen its market position in the Baltic Sea.
Ventspils will be positioned as the gateway to Scandinavia, thus reinforcing the route Ventspils-NynĂ¤shamn. The ferry Stena Flavia will be completely redirected to this route, while previously it also operated between Ventspils and TravemĂĽnde. The travel time on the route Ventspils-NynĂ¤shamn will be considerably reduced and the number of ferry departures will be increased by 30 %. Starting from 3 January 2017, instead of the usual 18 weekly crossings, 24 crossings per week will be available on this route.
