IFA to Serve Metlakatla


January 03, 2009

Ketchikan, Alaska - The Inter-Island Ferry Authority's M/V Stikine will be providing daily Ketchikan- Metlakatla- Ketchikan service from January 8 through January 12, announced IFA general manager Bruce Jones. Alternate service to the Annette Island community will be provided during the period when the M/V Lituya will be out of service for scheduled maintenance, said Jones.

The Stikine will depart Ketchikan at 11:30am, arriving Metlakatla at 2:00pm (Metlakatla time), departing Metlakatla at 2:30pm and returning to Ketchikan at 3:00pm (times are stated in Alaska Standard Time; Metlakatla observes Pacific Time). One way fares on the Stikine will be the same as those in effect on the Lituya. The IFA will collect fares aboard the vessel.

Arrangements for service to Metlakatla by the Stikine were made by the Metlakatla Indian Community.

Metlakatla service will not impact the regular daily schedule of the Stikine, which departs Hollis at 8:00am, arrives Ketchikan at 11:00am and departs Ketchikan at 3:30pm, returning to Hollis at 6:30pm, according to Jones. For further information call the IFA at 866-308-4848.
