Ferry Transportation Between Sakhalin and Hokkaido Will Be Resumed

 Sakhalin Region and Japan Prefecture of Hokkaido agreed on the resumption of cargo-passenger ferry Korsakov - Wakkanai - Korsakov from July 15 this year, the press service of the government of the Sakhalin area reported.

      The decision was taken at the plenary session of the Permanent Commission on Economic Development between Russian Far East Federal Districts and the Prefecture of Hokkaido, which was held on Thursday in Sapporo. JSC "Sakhalin Shipping Company" will be a new operator of international ferry line. As reported, the first ferry voyage between Sakhalin and Hokkaido was in 1995. It was served by Russian ferry "Sakhalin-7", which in 1999 replaced Eins Soya of Japanese operator HeartLand Ferry. But the route turned out to be unprofitable, and in September 2015 the foreign carrier finished its participation in the navigation.
