All ferry services between the coastal areas of Fujian Province and the islands of Kinmen and Matsu have resumed after being suspended for nearly three years due to COVID-19.
A ferry "Jishun 9" with 59 passengers on board arrived at Lianjiang, marking the resumption of the last passenger route between Fuzhou, Fujian Province and Matsu on Sunday. The ferry route between Lianjiang and Matsu opened in December 2015. Since its operation, more than 5,500 trips have been made, transporting over 195,000 passengers.
The resumption of the route marked the restoration of all four routes between the coastal areas of Fujian and the two islands. In January, ferry services between Xiamen, Fuzhou, Kinmen and Matsu resumed operations. Services between Quanzhou and Kinmen resumed this month.
