Stena Line sets sail to Finland for the first time

On 1 February 2022 the first ferry on Stena Line’s new route Nynäshamn-Hanko set sail towards Finland.

The vessel, Urd, left Nynäshamn/Stockholm Norvik Port after an inauguration ceremony with a small group of guests from business and politics.

Starting with three departures per week, the Nynäshamn-Hanko link will soon switch to a daily schedule, when the ferry Stena Gothica joins its sister vessel in the beginning of May.

”By Urd’s departure to Finland, we close a gap in the transport network. This new service is primarily an outcome of customer dialogue and market demand.

“But to bring it to life you also need to be somewhat entrepreneurial, and it requires hard work, a dedicated team and strong commitment to make a new route a success.

“So far the response has been very positive which shows that we made the right decision”, says Johan Edelman, Trade Director Baltic Sea North Stena Line.

The new route marks the next step in Stena Line’s ambition to further expand and strengthen its position in the Baltic Sea.

The new service will accommodate the increasing demand of the freight customers for seamless transports in the Baltic Sea and beyond.

By extending the network to Finland, Stena Line further improves and expands the most comprehensive, efficient, and integrated ferry network in Northern Europe.

The first ship on 1 February towards Finnish Hanko sailed overnight for a crossing time of 12 hours. Nynäshamn-Hanko is the first ever route from Stena Line connecting Sweden with mainland Finland.
