IMPORTANT INFO - UPPER DECK ACCESS
Passengers requesting upper deck and elevator access have been confirmed based on info provided. There has been excessive demand for this and it is affecting our ability to move reserved traffic. To be fair to all travellers, people who request upper deck accommodation for medical/mobility reasons must provide a valid medical note.
Therefore, effective October 12th, all requests for upper deck will be limited to passengers with medical or mobility issues. In order to be confirmed the passenger must provide a valid medical note, signed by an authorized person (doctor or nurse practitioner), or must have an accessibility permit.
All upper deck requests must be forwarded, by email, to email@example.com . The email must include a copy of the medical note or accessibility permit. It must be received at least 24 hours prior to travel. Also, please ensure you have this documentation available upon check in at the ticket offices.
We will ensure that those confirmed will either have access to park their vehicle on the upper deck and cross in their vehicle or have access to the elevator.
The Chief Medical Officer has provided a new order for the wearing of masks that will be effective Monday, August 24th. Please note the following as regards passengers travelling on the Qajaq W and the Kamutik W.

LMI recently increased capacity by utilizing the lower deck. Evaluation was completed by marine consultants to ensure safety of passengers in vehicles on the lower deck. We have received concerns from several passengers who were not comfortable staying in their vehicles on the lower deck and have decided to amend that process. Effective May 24th we will still utilize the lower deck when necessary to maintain the increased capacity. Passengers from vehicles, generally with 1 or 2 people, that have to go on the lower deck will be moved to the passenger lounge for the crossing. Physical distancing rules must be followed and masks worn if at all possible. The process for passengers in vehicles on the Upper deck is unchanged; You must remain in vehicles.
