The City of Turku, Finland is planning to develop the port area with construction of new terminal by the end of 2024. Both Viking Line and Tallink Silja Line operators will use a new joint terminal on the Turku–Stockholm regular route in accordance with their current schedules. When there are no Silja or Viking ships in the terminal, other cruise ships also will be able to request accommodation. The cost of the future terminal with total area of 12,000 m2 is estimated at around €45 million.

New terminal will be situated close to the present terminal of Tallink Silja Line and will be able to accommodate up to 5,000 passengers.

Shipping companies Viking Line and Tallink Silja Line together with the Port of Turku and the City of Turku have the goal to create a unique district near the sea in the passenger harbour where tourism and cargo transports as well as business operations and residential buildings will evolve side by side. The Turku Ferry Port project will start this fall, from 2019 to 2020 a multi-storey car parking will be built, and the last phase will include construction of the terminal – from 2023 until 2024.
