Free boats – jo thank you!
the Danes are wild with government sommertiltag, which in July has made it possible for pedestrians and cyclists to sail free on 53 ferry routes in Denmark. It shows passenger numbers from the several ferry routes, which the DR has drawn.
For example, the Ærø ferries had over 140,000 passengers in July, which is 50,000 more than the same month the year before.
ÆrøXpressen, sailing between Marstal on Ærø and Rudkøbing on Langeland island, is at sea for the first time this season, has scored a drømmestart on life as overfartsfærge with more than 40,000 passengers in the month of July.
- We were waiting with many passengers in July, but not so many. We have been left a little above the end, says Boye Kromann, who is the director of ÆrøXpressen, to the dr.dk.

the Ferry Kalundborg-Samsø noted for 23.860 passengers on foot and bike in July, which is a lot more than the 415 soft passengers, reached in July 2013.
Finally reports the ferry between Esbjerg and Fanoe an increase of 20 percent in comparison with last year, while Holbæk-Bible has had a passagertilstrømning of more than 50 percent.
- We are drowning in success at the moment, says overfartsleder Lars W. Hansen to the dr.dk.
Many ferry operators are planning to ride on the wave by extending the free period of two for pedestrians and cyclists and by september – still with the grants from the state.
