More passengers travelling with DFDS

Twenty per cent – that’s how great the increase in ferry passengers on the route between Copenhagen and Oslo is so far in 2015. DFDS operates the popular service, where the number of passengers has increased almost every month since December last year. As reported by

”I am sure that it is our large-scale investments in the two ferries on the Copenhagen-Oslo route that are now starting to bear fruit. Growth such as this does not come about on its own”, says Kevin Helsinghof, country manager for DFDS in Denmark and Sweden.

DFDS is even expecting the number of passengers in 2015 to be the highest for five years.

Newly refurbished ships
Last year DFDS completed the refurbishment of the ferries Crown Seaways and Pearl Seaways – investments that amounted to DK 120 million. Some 750,000 people travelled on the route during 2014. About 10% of the Danish passengers that travel between Copenhagen and Oslo do so in connection with meetings or conferences – in other words, what is usually called the MICE segment.

”DFDS has also put a lot of energy into informing the market and the customers that the ferry line between Copenhagen and Oslo is a highly interesting option. At the same time, more Danes are discovering that they are a bit better off and are therefore able to allow themselves a mini-break on our newly renovated ships”, says Kevin Helsinghof.
