15.03.2022

The tragic events unfolding in Ukraine over the last three weeks have understandably made some guests rethink their holiday plans for 2022. Via Hansa & Borealis has seen massive cancellations of tours to Russia from around the world, while most customers for the time being are keeping on to their bookings in the Baltic and Nordic countries. Hans Henrik Kjølby, CEO, Via Hansa & Borealis, explains: “We have received many worried mails these last weeks about the situation in the Nordic and Baltic countries. While we strongly condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine, it is important to underline that it is unthinkable, that the same or anything similar would happen here. We truly understand that many are worried, but the Nordic and Baltic countries are relying on their integration into the political, economic and military structures of Europe. Authorities are taking further needed precautions to secure borders, boost defense capabilities, enhance co-operation and guarantee safety. The safety for visitors in the Nordic and Baltic countries has not and will not deteriorate as a result of the tragic events in Ukraine. At the same time the numbers of covid-19 cases are decreasing across the region and restrictions are being loosened”
