Stena Line Announces 950 Layoffs Due to Coronavirus Impact


Stena Line has announced plans to layoff 950 employees due to travel restrictions imposed amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Swedish-based company announced it has seen a substantial effect on its passenger operations as a result of the virus, especially in the Scandinavia region where passenger traffic to Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Germany, and Latvia has been halted “to a large extent,” the company said.

Last week, Stena Line had completely stopped operating its Oslo, Norway – Frederikshavn, Denmark route until further notice.

The planned jobs cuts will impact 950 people employed by Stena Line Scandinavia AB on board nine Swedish-flagged vessels, as well as two sister companies Stena Line Travel Group and Retail & Food Services.
