Tallink Grupp's new flagship MyStar

Tallink Grupp has published its 2022 fourth quarter and December passenger and cargo statistics, which show improvement after the last two years despite the global economic and security challenges.

During 2022, Tallink Grupp transported a total of 5 462 085 passengers on all of the company’s routes, which is a 84.4% increase compared to the previous year (2 961 975 passengers in 2021). Passenger numbers increased on all three of the company’s current regular routes, with Finland-Sweden experiencing the greatest increase at +96%, Estonia-Sweden (+93.4%) and Estonia-Finland (+76.9%).

The number of passenger vehicles transported in 2022 increased by 36.1% vs. 2021 and cargo units by 11%.

"We have not seen passenger figures exceeding 4 million in the last two years, so although the 5.5 million carried in 2022 is still not comparable to pre-COVID numbers, we are very pleased with this outcome for 2022. With six ships less in regular operations during the last quarter of the year, due to charter agreements and important war relief support, it is close to the maximum that could have been achieved during the year when COVID subsided, but even worse geopolitical crises arose.

"It has taken a great deal of effort from everyone in Tallink, both on shore and on board, to return people to the ships after the pandemic and keep them sailing through geopolitical storms and an uncertain and challenging economic outlook. It has been a valiant team effort carried on from the COVID years, which makes me very proud to work with the people we have in Tallink Grupp. I am also grateful to our loyal customers for finding their way back to us after some years apart and for their continuing faith in us, which enables us to continue rebuilding our business one step at a time," says Paavo Nõgene, CEO, Tallink Grupp.

Continuing to offer kind words to the team, Nõgene wishes the next year brings peace and identifies Tallink Grupp's new flagship MyStar as a key opportunity for the future.
