The ferry service to Aegna island in Tallinn Bay restarts on Monday, having been closed during the coronavirus pandemic.

Tallinn Deputy Mayor Andrei Novikov (Center) said Friday that preparations for restarting the link, which will run to late September, are underway.

"In order for ferry traffic to be safe and secure for both passengers and crew members, we have provided the passenger ship, the Vesta, with the necessary amount of disinfectants and cleaning products," said Novikov, according to a Tallinn city press release.

The link runs from June 1 to September 27, with three trips per day Friday to Sunday and two per day Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. No journeys will be made on Tuesdays as the Vesta will undergo maintenance work then.

From September, trips will only be on weekends, one on Saturdays and Sundays each.

"An exception is June 23 and 24 (Jaaniöö/päev-ed.), when there will be three and four departures, respectively, "Novikov went on, adding that if necessary, they will be ready to supplement the route schedule if demand requires it.

The Vesta departs from the Linnahall quay, the former Linda Lines departure point, in Tallinn; the journey takes about an hour.

Tickets can be bought when boarding or up to two hours in advance. More information is here.

Aegna lies about 14 km north of Tallinn and just off the Viimsi peninsula. It is 3 square kilometers and is popular for day trips due to its walking trails, beaches, and relics from its time as a military installation during the Soviet era. It is administratively a part of Tallinn and falls under the Kesklinn district.
