NorthLink Ferries to Orkney and Shetland

Serco NorthLink Ferries welcomes new look Hjaltland back to service

Serco NorthLink Ferries is set to welcome the MV Hjaltland back to service this week, complete with new livery.

Stuart Garrett, Managing Director at Serco NorthLink Ferries, commented: “Following the extremely positive reception that the Hamnavoe came home to last month, we are looking forward to unveiling the remainder of the fleet. This includes the Hjaltland which will return to service this Thursday (20 February).

“We are confident that the new livery will excite potential tourists about the history and culture of the Northern Isles, with the hope that they will be prompted to experience it for themselves.”

The Hjaltland is scheduled to arrive into Lerwick at 3pm on Thursday, leaving later that evening for a direct sailing to Aberdeen. Budding photographers are being invited to e-mail their photography of the new-look Hjaltland to webmaster@northlinkferries.co.uk – the best image will be selected on Monday (24th February) and the winner will receive a trip from Lerwick to Aberdeen with a cabin.

The new NorthLink Ferries brand was launched in spring 2013 and the new livery marks the final stage of the roll out. This was completed as part of the scheduled repainting and maintenance of the vessel.

Those who wish to book or require further information should go to www.northlinkferries.co.uk/ or call 0845 6000 449.
