LIMITED: AMHS to assist IFA with temporary ferry service between Ketchikan and Hollis

Ketchikan, Alaska – On May 22, the Inter-Island Ferry Authority’s (IFA) M/V Prince of

Wales suffered a catastrophic propulsion system failure. This failure has left Prince of Wales Island with limited options for travel and commerce. The IFA anticipates a return to service on June 11. We realize that this has been a major inconvenience to our customers and supply chain partners so our team went to work immediately to find

solutions for our customers.

The IFA, in conjunction with our partners at the Alaska Marine Highway System (AMHS),

developed a limited sailing schedule to repatriate and serve IFA customers. The AMHS

ship M/V Lituya will sail round-trip from Ketchikan to Hollis on Thursday, May 28, and

Saturday, May 30. The Lituya will continue to provide limited service until the IFA is back

in service – priority will be given to stranded travelers. No new bookings will take place

until the backlog is cleared. To view the schedule and learn when new reservations

open, check for updates on the IFA website. The IFA would like to thank our customers
