Increasing capacity on the ferry highway Tallinn - Helsinki
Eckerö Line had announced in May 2019 that it will be chartering the RoPax ferry European Endevour starting on Muuga-Vuosaari route from June 2019. Muuga is located east of Tallinn, Vuosaari in the east of Helsinki.

At the same time Tallink announced accepting regular passengers on the Muuga-Vuosaari cargo route from 12 June 2019.
