Tallink Grupp has today announced that it will stop selling cruise tickets, i.e. return tickets, on the Tallinn-Stockholm route from 13 March until 1 May 2020.

Tallink will work with authorities to identify further measures to implement on the company’s vessels to further prevent the spread of the virus. Additional measures will be communicated as soon as the respective measures have been agreed.
„We completely understand the necessity of implementing the measures that our governments are implementing and will cooperate fully with the Estonian, Finnish, Swedish and Latvian authorities with one common goal in mind – to ensure the health and safety of us all. We will work with the authorities now on the specifics and details behind all the measures announced and identify the best solutions for preventing the spread of the virus. We are ready to take any steps necessary and to act decisively and without delay in this current situation. We will communicate any additional measures, decisions and actions without delay,“ Paavo Nõgene, CEO of Tallink Grupp said.
