Estonia’s Tallinna Sadam passenger numbers up 2.2% on year in Q3

In total 5.5 mln tons of cargoes, 27.5% more than a year ago, and 3.5 mln passengers, 2.2% more, passed through the ports of the listed Estonian port company Tallinna Sadam during the third quarter of 2018, cities LETA/BNS. 

The number of ship calls was 2,135.

"Such a large increase in liquid bulk volume in comparison of the third quarters is rather exceptional and mainly results from the very low base level of the previous year. In the following periods, we do not predict the growth of liquid bulk on this scale, rather we see the stabilization of cargo flows," Tallinna SadamCEO Valdo Kalm said.

Aside from liquid bulk, also mixed cargoes and, to a smaller degree, ro-ro and bulk volumes moved higher. The volume of container cargoes measured in tons decreased, but the number of containers handled grew.

Passenger numbers on the biggest passenger routes, Tallinn-Helsinki and Tallinn-Stockholm, were broadly unchanged from a year ago. The biggest increase was registered in passenger numbers on the Tallinn-St. Petersburg route – by 18%. Cruise passenger numbers increased by 12% year over.

The CEO said the company expects moderate growth in passenger numbers to continue.

The number of ship calls increased by 71 in freight ship calls and by 15 in cruise ship calls. The number of calls by ships plying regular routes decreased by 177 calls as a result of the pulling of the Viking FSTR.

In the first nine months of the year, the cargo volume of Tallinna Sadam totaled 15.6 mln tons, increasing by 9.3% compared to the same three quarters of the previous year. In the nine months of 2018, 8.3 mln passengers visited the harbors of Tallinna Sadam, 1.0% more than in the comparable period of 2017.

The Tallinna Sadam subsidiary TS Laevad carried 905,000 passengers and 368,000 vehicles on the routes between the mainland and Estonia's two biggest islands during the quarter, respectively 5% and 6.7% more than during the third quarter of 2018. In the nine months ferries of TS Laevad carried 1.85 mln passengers and 787,000 vehicles, marking increases of respectively 2.5% and 4% on year.
