The SeaWalk placed only 10 minutes away from the airport, enabled turnaround operations involving passengers, crew and luggage in a cost-effective manner, while the airport handled the largest types of aircrafts. The Port of Lakselv demonstrated this in the summer of 2015 when Pullmantur performed turnaround operations involving MV Empress and jumbo jets.
The SeaWalk-luggage version was operational from 2018. It is a game-changer for the industry in Europe, allowing 7 day cruises to North Cape. The SeaWalk installation facilitates the possibility of enjoying the midnight sun on a short seven day cruise.
