Hahn Air Systems is pleased to announce that Tallink has become its second ferry partner to take advantage of its 5W-Rail&Shuttle product. By coming on board, Tallink’s passenger transport services will now be available under the 5W two-letter code in all major GDSs worldwide.

To start, the Helsinki to Tallinn route is now available under Hahn Air System’s 5W code, with the other routes to follow soon.
“We have been focusing on growing our 5W-Rail&Shuttle network in an effort to bring additional connections for travel agents to offer their customers. We are now proud to welcome Tallink as our second maritime partner and we truly believe that we can support them in reaching new markets and unlocking new business opportunities.” said Alexander Proschka, Head of Hahn Air Systems.
“Our partnership with Hahn Air Systems is key to enhancing our distribution strategy”, says Margus Schults, Managing Director of Tallink Silja Oy. “While we previously relied on direct distribution channels, we are now able to add indirect sales channels to our distribution mix.
