    Tallink Grupp announces its passenger and cargo transport statistics for August 2019

    Tallink Grupp has announced its passenger and cargo transport statistics for the month of August and has reported transporting a total of over one million passengers for the first time ever in the month of August and a record number of passengers per month for the fourth month in a row in 2019. This is also the first time in the company’s history when a record number of passengers have been transported four months in a row.

    According to the statistics the company transported a total of 1 017 565 passengers, which is a 2.5% increase on the same period last year and the number of passengers was higher on all the company’s routes compared to August 2018. The company has transported a record number of passengers in August on the Estonia-Sweden routes and on the Latvia Sweden route. The Estonia-Finland routes additionally transported the second highest number of passengers in the company’s history for the month of August.

    The number of cargo units transported by the company decreased in August by 3.2% compared to the same period in 2018 to 30 519 units, but the number of cargo units continued to increase positively on the Finland-Sweden routes with 7.6% more cargo units transported on the routes compared to August 2018. The number of passenger vehicles saw a minor increase in August 2019 by 17 units to 115 339 passenger vehicles transported in the month, with the Estonia-Finland routes contributing to the increase with 1.9% passenger vehicles more transported in the month compared to the same period last year.

    Commenting on the statistics, Tallink Grupp’s CEO Paavo Nõgene said:

    “Transporting one million passengers in August is a great result for this month since it is usually the end of the high season with many children in our key markets back to school and people back to work, traditionally marking the end of the summer high season of travelling in our region. So, we are particularly pleased to achieve the first ever million-passenger-August in the company’s history.

    “The decrease in the cargo transport, however, has continued in the month, despite the Finland-Sweden routes continuing to see an increase. The competition in this area has obviously tightened in the last few months, so we must work harder in the cargo transport area in the months to come to improve business in this area and achieve the targets set. However, I believe we continue to have an excellent and competitive cargo transportation service to offer to all our cargo customers, but a particularly good offering on the Estonia-Finland routes with up to 16 departures daily, offering great flexibility for the service users.

    “All in all, we certainly have work to do for the rest of the year as we finish the third quarter and enter the fourth quarter of the year, but the summer high season passenger figures with three months of over one million passengers, are certainly a good result and we have achieved this with great teamwork across our whole group.”
