Marine Atlantic to Suspend Argentia Route for 2020 Season
Marine Atlantic announced the Corporation will suspend the Argentia – North Sydney ferry service for the 2020 summer tourism season.
As everyone continues to work hard to flatten the curve and battle COVID-19, the demand for leisure and tourism travel to and from the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador is not expected to recover in the coming weeks.
With travel restrictions in effect throughout Canada, these trends are expected to continue into the summer season.
Customers with cancelled reservations will be provided full refunds. With travel restrictions in place in both Newfoundland and Labrador and Nova Scotia, customers are advised to review the latest provincial restrictions and government websites prior to travel.
Moving forward there will continue to be a minimum of two crossings per day on the Port aux Basques – North Sydney route, and no changes to the commercial and passenger rate structure for the remainder of the fiscal year. If traffic demand warrants, the Corporation also has the ability to add additional capacity.
