Finnish ferry company Viking Line has decided to strengthen its Helsinki-Tallinn route as the company will add a new vessel, the Viking Faster, to the route during the period from April to late October, 2017.

With a capacity for about 850 passengers and 120 cars, the new catamaran, which will cut the sailing time on the route to less than two hours, will start operating from April 10.

In past years, aside from the usual service on the Viking XPRS, additional sailings were provided by the M/S Mariella and M/S Gabriella, according to Viking Line.

“This year we also want to start up the additional sailings beginning in the spring and continue them well into the autumn,” Kaj Takolander, Sales and Marketing Manager at Viking Line, said.

During the spring and autumn, the Viking FSTR will make four to six daily sailings in addition to the Viking XPRS’ usual four departures. In July, there will be 12 daily departures on the Helsinki–Tallinn route since the vessels that serve the Helsinki–Stockholm route will also make one return sailing to Tallinn during the day.
