tals of Vienna and Bratislava.
The boarding point in Vienna will be located on the Danube Canal at Schwedenplatz. The 75-minute boat trip service is scheduled to operate three times a day from June until end of October this year, and May through October from 2007. The liner, having merely 0.8 m draught and jet propulsion, is perfectly suited to navigate the Danube and Danube Canal; its hull is said to produce less wash than other passenger liners currently operating on the Danube Canal. This project was launched in the framework of a public-private-partnership model. The partners are Central Danube Region Marketing & Development GmbH, an enterprise of Wien Holding, and Raiffeisenlandesbank Vienna-Lower Austria.
