Inter-Island Ferry Authority Service on hold till June 11th
On May 22nd, the Inter-Island Ferry Authority (IFA) suffered a catastrophic propulsion system failure on the port side of the M/V Prince of Wales. The M/V Prince of Wales will be placed into inactive status until parts and technicians to make the necessary repairs can be secured. The M/V Stikine has been waiting for repairs the last 30 days . The delay in repairs is due to the inability of technicians to travel from the lower 48. We are working to get technicians scheduled and M/V Stikine back into service.
We are targeting a return to service on June 11th, at which time we will be increasing to a 5
day a week schedule. Sailings will be Sunday, Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday .
We realize that this is a major inconvenience to our customers and supply chain
partners . We are working diligently on trying to identify solutions for our customers in
the difficult time.
