The possible termination of the charter of MS Finnsailor and the possible change of the vessel under an other shipregister and to an other traffic area may lead to dismissals or lay off of maximum 41 persons.
If realised, the plans will not affect the provision of maritime liner services or the service level offered to the customers.
