The Ministry of Transport and Communications has submitted the government proposal on amending the Act on Fairway Dues for comments.

The Government proposes that fairway dues continue to be halved in 2022–2023. The decision to temporarily reduce the fairway dues by half has been in force since 2015.

The aim of continuing the validity of the decision is to promote Finland’s competitiveness and the recovery of businesses after the economic challenges caused by the COVID-19 epidemic.

What next?

The deadline for comments is 2 July 2021. Comments may be submitted by all organisations and private individuals. The request for comments is available online at

The proposal is related to the supplementary Budget proposal for 2022 and is to be discussed in that context.
