ROUND UP FOR CHARITY – AGAIN!

For the third year in a row, Stena Line launched a fleet-wide donation campaign to support the free, life-saving medical treatments that Mercy Ships provides from its hospital ship in countries where it’s needed the most.

This year the campaign started 1 October and throughout the month customers on all 37 vessels will be encouraged to Round Up for Charity. At the end of the month Stena Line will round up as well – hoping to beat last year’s result of 200,000 SEK.

What’s better still is, Mercy Ships has been appointed a UK Aid Match* Partner for the last quarter of 2019. This means every pound donated to Mercy Ships from a vessel travelling to and from the UK will be matched by the British government – up until 31 December and up to a possible 2 million GBP.

HAPPY BRINGING HAPPINESS

The Stena Line mascot Happy the porpoise has been very well received among our young travellers, and he now brings double the happiness. We are donating 1 Euro for every Happy toy sold in our on board shops, directly to Mercy Ships. Since the launch of the new collaboration we’ve seen an increase in the number of Happys sold, generating a much-needed additional monthly donation for Mercy Ships.

*UK Aid Match works to bring charities, people and the UK Government together to collectively change lives. If you want to read more about the UK Aid Match and of how you can contribute, please visit ukaidmatch.org or mercyships.org.uk.

This is the foundation of what over 400 seasonal recruits are being taught at Öckerö Martime Center in the Gothenburg archipelago, West Sweden, during the spring. Stena Line has placed a real evacuation system here that releases into the water – the only one in Northern Europe.

STENA LINE OPENS NEW ROUTE TO FINLAND

In recent months, Stena Line has heavily focused on expanding in the Baltic Sea. With its newest route, the ferry operator literally breaks new ground, and closes a gap at the same time. Stena Line’s first ever ferry route to mainland Finland makes up for the now densest route network in Northern Europe, reaching from the Irish Sea to the utmost east of the continent. The opening is also a testament of Stena Line’s approach to act dynamically and consequently, when the customers’ demand is there.

EXPANSION CONTINUES

Over the past year, Stena Line has expanded in the Baltic Sea, increasing both freight and passenger capacity, to cater for increasing demand of sea transportation in the region. This year Stena Line has already introduced new large and modern ferries on both of their two Latvian routes Nynäshamn-Ventspils and Travemünde-Liepaja. The ferry company has announced that the expansion on the Baltic Sea will continue during 2022, increasing both freight- and passenger capacity. The company has announced that they will deploy their two new 240-meter-long fuel-efficient E-Flexer ferries, on the Nynäshamn-Ventspils next year. Stena Line has also announced plans to increase the capacity on the Karlskrona-Gdynia route with the deployment of the two large and modern ferries Stena Scandica and Stena Baltica.
