Public Advisory: MV Astron and MV Northern Ranger Services Delayed

Due to heavy ice conditions along Labradorís North Coast, the MV Astron will not be returning to service on June 14 as previously scheduled. The service will resume once ice conditions improve.

The start of the MV Northern Ranger service, which was also scheduled to resume on June 14, will be postponed due to delays associated with the completion of refit work and ice conditions. It is anticipated that the vessel will depart Lewisporte for Happy Valley-Goose Bay on or about June 18 and begin service out of Happy Valley-Goose Bay on June 21 pending ice conditions.

Further updates will be provided as details become available.
