Molslinjens Express has arrived in Aarhus
After almost a month at sea, Molslinjen's new express ferry, Express 4, made it to the Port of Arhus this Sunday. The journey of more than 11.000 nautical mailes from Perth in Australia to Aarhus is done, and Express 4 is getting ready to transport guests between Aarhus and Odden.
“It is always feels great when a brand new ferry is finally in its place at the port, after years of hard work and planning. We look forward to putting it into operation and to show it to our guests” says Molslinjens CEO, Carsten Jensen.
From Perth on the west coast of Australia, the trip went over the Indian Ocean, through the Suez Canal, the Mediterranean and the English Channel, and after reaching Skagen the ferry sailed through Kattegat to get to Aarhus. This is what the past months journey has looked like for Express 4, which could finally dock today at the Port of Aarhus.
Express 4 will sail between Aarhus and Odden, and with this new ferry, customers in the Kattegat sea area will be serviced by three of the worlds largest catamarans Express 2, Express 3 and Express 4.
"Now that we have three super ferries we can increase our capacity in Kattegat by almost 20 percent, and at the same time the ferry will strengthen the infrastructure and cohesion in Denmark even further," says Carsten Jensen.
Express 4 made a stop at Odden’s ferry port, most likely to refuel before finally sailing home to Aarhus at 11.33 o’clock on Sunday.
Express 4 will make its first departure from Aarhus to Odden on Zealand on March 14 at 07.45 o’clock.
