Finnlines’ Finnfellow set sail today at 10:15 from Malmö in Sweden for Swinoujście in Poland for the first time on its new route. Finnfellow will operate the route daily in both directions, in the morning from Malmö and with evening service from Świnoujście.

“We have prepared for the launch of this new line for some time now, and it is a joyful day to see Finnfellow set sail for Świnoujście. This is a significant opportunity for us to expand our services and by utilising our expertise and capabilities, we are committed to advancing the ro-pax services in the Southern Baltic Sea region,” says Antonio Raimo, Line Manager at Finnlines.

Finnlines’ new route to Poland marks its second expansion into the region, following nearly 30 years of successful operations on the Finland–Poland route. Finnlines aims to further expand its route network in this important market by connecting the West Pomerania area in Poland to Malmö, the third largest city in Sweden. Malmö offers convenient connections to other parts of Sweden as well as to Denmark. Finnlines has been operating from Malmö since 2002 and, in addition to the new Poland route, the shipping company also offers daily liner services to Travemünde in Germany.

“The launch of our new ro-pax service between Malmö and Świnoujście secures an important trade route on the Southern Baltic Sea corridor and further strengthens our position on the Baltic Sea. We expect a continued high growth rate in freight volumes as well as passenger travels,” says Tom Pippingsköld, President and CEO at Finnlines.
