   August 29, 2020 ,   Cruise Industry

In response to the continuing travel restrictions caused by the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, AIDA Cruises cancelled its previously announced voyages for September 2020 and its schedule is now slated to commence from November.

Earlier this month the company had announced it would begin operations from ports in Germany early September. However, the first liner from the AIDA Cruises fleet to begin sailing will be AIDAmar which will leave for the Canaries on November 1.

AIDAperla is next on November 7 and will take over the sailings planned for AIDAnova.

AIDA Cruises is due to resume sailing operations in the Western Mediterranean with AIDAstella, which is scheduled to leave from Palma de Mallorca, Spain on December 12.

AIDAprima will commence operations from UAE ports in mid-December.

The cruise line has taken the decision to extend its suspension of operations and all short cruises with AIDAblu from Kiel, Germany as well as September journeys with AIDAperla from Hamburg.

All sailings through the end of October will also be cancelled. Other cruises planned for the autumn-winter season for the 2020-2021 season in the Azores, Western Mediterranean, and Cape Verde Islands will not take place.

Felix Eichhorn, president of AIDA Cruises said that even though it was currently not possible for cruise ships to call at Norway, they were confident that the first ships of the line from Germany would be able to travel to Northern Europe again at the beginning of next year.
