New Saaremaa-Turku route not yet certain

Estonia's Saaremaa Shipping Company claims that Finnish newspapers’ statements about the opening of a shipping line between Saaremaa and Turku are overstated. Finnish newspaper Turun Sanomat wrote that the SSC subsidiary Narva Line, which operates the Kotka-Sillamae route, is planning to open line between Saaremaa and Turku as well. SSC’s executive director, Tonis Rihvk, said that the issue of a Saaremaa-Turku route has been discussed, but it is not yet certain. Bringing another ship to the Sillamae-Kotka route is a much more serious plan, Rihvk said.
