The new service is operated by the company’s F/B Blue Star Myconos following the signing of a public service contract.
The sailing of the F/B Blue Star Myconos starts from Thessaloniki with intermediate calls at the islands of Limnos, Lesvos, Chios, Samos, Fourni, Ikaria, Mykonos and Syros. Its final destination is the port of Piraeus.
“The deployment of the Blue Star Myconos fulfills a long-standing request both from passengers and transportation companies, to directly connect Thessaloniki with the islands of the North Aegean and the Cyclades,” Attica Group said in an announcement.
Together with itineraries from the port of Kavala, Attica Group now serves Northern Greece from two ports, offering alternative solutions to passengers and goods.
