MV Hjaltland leaving Shetland

Revised NorthLink Ferries Timetable to Operate During Dry Dock Period

NorthLink Ferries will operate an amended service on its Aberdeen to Kirkwall and Lerwick route during January 2017 due to passenger vessel MV Hjaltland entering a scheduled dry dock period.

MV Hrossey will operate a single vessel revised timetable on the route from Sunday 8th January. MV Hjaltland is expected to return to service on Friday 27th January.

The scheduled dry dock period will allow MV Hjaltland to receive routine maintenance and necessary repair work.

Peter Hutchinson, Customer Service Director at NorthLink Ferries, said: “The revised timetable serviced by MV Hrossey will allow passengers to travel to and from Orkney, Shetland and the mainland on a regular basis whilst MV Hjaltland is in dry dock.

“Operating from the beginning of January, the timetable will offer sailings every other day with no sailing scheduled on a Saturday.

“The scheduled maintenance of the passenger vessel ensures that routine checks of the ship can be carried out .”
