From 1951 to 1980 did the SL ferries operate the route between Port of Tuborg (Tuborg Havn) in northern Copenhagen and Landskrona. During a larger part of that period, also the ''Viking Bådene'' http: www.oresundstid.dk arkiv arkivalt.aspx?id 1135&tekst Temaer&standard J http: www.kwmosgaard.dk ferries danviking_1959.htm http: bjarneabel.blogspot.se 2013 07 havnegade-i-kbh-og-frgerne.html http: www.faktaomfartyg.se dan_viking_1959.htm operated smaller passenger ships between the inner port of Copenhagen harbour. They were owned in Denmark 19 From around 1970 they were purchased by the Swedish ''Centrumlinjen'' but kept their name. The 1973 energy crisis eventually caused the end of this shipping line. http: www.faktaomfartyg.se centrumlinjens_historia.htm Between 1980 and 1984 different kind of ships och shipping lines offered at least summer time traffic to Copenhagen. And From 1985 Scarlett Line was formed, and once again sailed to Port of Tuborg (Tuborg Havn). From the spring of 1991 did Danish ''Vognmandsruten A S'' merge with Scarlett Line, maintained the established name and began to sail every hour. The new shipping line mainly was intended to live on transport of lorries. In the autumn of 1993 ''Vognmandsruten A S'' went bankrupt and this put an end to the car and lorry ferry traffic from Landskrona. However hydrofoilic speedboats ''Flygbåtarna AB'', which preaviously only had served passenger traffic in the southern part of Øresund, between Malmö and Copenhagen, now began to operate also from both Landskrona as well as from Helsingborg.
