To gear up in the Northern Baltics and manage capacity more efficiently in the Baltics, the newly returned Sirena Seaways embarked on her first sailing on her new route between Paldiski – Kapellskär taking over from Optima Seaways that was repositioned to Klaipėda-Karlshamn.
Additionally, as M/S Sailor’s charter agreement will soon expire, Patria Seaways will take over Sailor‘s schedule for the Paldiski-Hanko and Paldiski- Kapellskär routes, starting from Week 28.
Rene Pärt, Baltic Sales & Partnership Manager, says, “We are establishing ourselves in the Northern Baltic Sea region by changing both of our vessels in Estonia with bigger and better ones to continue servicing our wide customer base on Paldiski-Kapellskär.
“Swapping ferries inbetween routes involve complex processes, from crew changes and adjusting onboard concepts as well as complying to a different set of requirements when calling various ports” says Robertas Kogelis, Baltic Onboard Sales Director.
“The Customer Care teams completed several adjustments to customer bookings within a short span of time. I am very proud how our teams in Estonia, Lithuania and Sweden, including colleagues on our ferries, Baltic Onboard and Crewing departments, handled these changes.”
The new setup provides more flexible tonnage opportunities for our freight customers on the Klaipėda-Karlshamn route and with Patria and Sirena sailing from Paldiski, they will ensure an efficient mix of passenger and freight capacity in the Northern Baltic. This will surely accommodate the growing demand in the region while delivering consistent service to our guests on board”.
