On April 1, the route Trelleborg-Sassnitz will be launched with the high-speed catamaran Skane Jet in Port of Trelleborg. At the same time, we look forward to welcoming FRS Baltic as a new customer in the port.
The fastest route to the Continent
The high-speed catamaran Skane Jet carries more than 600 passengers and up to 200 vehicles in just 2.5 hours and is thus the fastest connection by sea from Sweden to Germany. FRS Baltic will offer day trips to Bordershop during April-October 2023, but also night departures during the summer months.
Positive trend for passenger traffic
The number of cars and passengers has had a positive development in Port of Trelleborg in 2022. 1.6 million passengers and and just over 372,000 cars passed through the port and the upward trend looks set to continue in 2023 as well, when the port’s new customer FRS Baltic starts up the route to Sassnitz again.
The King’s Route will be resumed
The King’s Route between Trelleborg and Sassnitz was inaugurated on July 6, 1909 by King Gustaf V and the German Emperor Wilhelm II. The route Trelleborg-Sassnitz was shut down in 2020 due to the corona pandemic.
The best RoRo port in Europe with five destinations in Europe
Port of Trelleborg has a unique geographical location and serves today the destinations Rostock, Travemünde, Sassnitz, Swinoujscie and Klaipeda.
– We are proud that we once again can offer as many as five routes to Europe, which no other Swedish port can. With Skane Jet we now have 16 vessels in traffic in the port, that is impressive, says Jörgen Nilsson, CEO of Port of Trelleborg.
The tourism is expected to increase in Trelleborg
− Good infrastructure is an important ingredient when a destination wants to attract more foreign visitors. Already last year, we set a new record when it comes to German guests, and the new ferry connection will give us even better conditions to take additional market shares. Our companies are now looking forward to welcoming even more German visitors to Trelleborg and the South Coast, says Maarja Edman, CEO of Visit Trelleborg.
