Covid-19: DFDS sumažina plaukimus Danija - Norvegija

COVID-19: One of the two ships serving DFDS’ passenger routes on Copenhagen – Oslo and Frederikshavn – Oslo will be temporarily laid up due to tighter travel restrictions. Unfortunately, 20 waiters will be affected, whilst other colleagues will maintain their jobs as a result of a trade union agreement, relocation to other ships, etc.  Increasing infection rates and stricter travel restrictions have reduced further the number of passengers on DFDS’ passenger ferry routes on Copenhagen – Oslo and Frederikshavn – Oslo in recent weeks.  “With […]
