SERCO NorthLink Ferries welcomed its 200,000th passenger of the year onboard the MV Hamnavoe. 

The momentous milestone marks the first time in NorthLink Ferries’ eleven-year history that 200,000 passengers have travelled on the Stromness-Scrabster route in one year.  

As a token of NorthLink Ferries’ appreciation, on Friday 8th December 2023, the 200,000th passenger, Margaret Ross, was presented with a bottle of champagne and complimentary travel vouchers.  

NorthLink Ferries has also projected it will reach another record-breaking milestone this month (December), anticipating it will carry its 400,000th passenger across all NorthLink Ferries routes. Could you be the lucky 400,000th passenger? 

Stuart Garrett, Serco’s Managing Director for NorthLink Ferries, said: “Achieving these milestones is testament to our fantastic team at NorthLink Ferries and the service they offer our valued passengers who travel with us.   

“I would like to express my sincere thanks to all who choose to travel with NorthLink Ferries and the exceptional team members who make each sailing special for our passengers.

I have no doubt in my mind that this is why we are seeing record-breaking numbers of passengers choosing to travel with NorthLink Ferries.”
