Public Advisory: Schedules Announced for 2010 Labrador Marine Service

The 2010 Labrador Marine Service schedules are now available and can be found on the Department of Transportation and Works website.

Start and end dates for the 2010 Labrador Marine Service will be as follows pending ice and weather conditions:

  • The MV Sir Robert Bond will begin service June 18 and end November 25;

  • The MV Astronís schedule will start June 14 and end November 26;

  • The MV Northern Ranger service will begin June 14 and end November 19; and,

  • The MV Marine Eagle service will start June 9 and end November 30.

Ice conditions will be evaluated in mid-May to determine whether earlier start dates are possible.

As part of the continuing pilot project to provide year-round service across the Strait of Belle Isle, the MV Apollo will resume service between Blanc Sablon and St. Barbe on April 3 pending ice conditions. If ice conditions do not allow the vessel to dock at St. Barbe, the service will continue between Blanc Sablon and Corner Brook until conditions improve. The scheduled service end date is January 16, 2011 pending a review of the current pilot project to determine if it will continue into the 2011 season.
