New expanded routes to Kelowna, Yellowknife and Ottawa are now in operation.
Air North presently operates six Boeing 737 aircraft and five HS748 aircraft. The HS748 will carry a maximum of 40 passengers or approximately 10,000 pounds of cargo. Due to the large cargo volumes on their scheduled service they generally operate in 20-32 passenger combi configuration. This provides adequate passenger and freight capacity on most scheduled flights. The HS748 is a pressurized turboprop aircraft which cruises at about 250 mph. In combi configuration it provides passenger seating in the rear with cargo up front. The cargo door measures 4' x 4'6”. Runway requirements are 3500'-5000' for the HS748.
Air North has been providing scheduled passenger service since 1986. For almost 40 years, they've flown their passengers to great destionations in the Yukon, British Columbia, Alberta, Northwest Territories, and Ontario. In that time, they've become known for their authentic Yukon hospitality and committment to a world-class customer experience. Their primary focus is on delivering air travel that is safe, convenient, reliable, and affordable. Using modern Boeing 737 aircraft, they connect Whitehorse to several major gateways including Vancouver, Kelowna, Calgary, Edmonton, Yellowknife, and Ottawa. Hawker Siddeley 748 turboprop service is offered between Whitehorse and Dawson City, Old Crow, and Inuvik.
Airnorth President Joe Sparling stated, "Being an isolated community with no road access, Old Crow generates substantial freight volumes in the form of groceries, mail, furniture, consumer items and building materials and it is this air freight which provides the impetus for large aircraft service six days per week on our north scheduled service".
Air North has had over 35 years experience in providing air transportation in the north. The company has been under the same management since inception. With their fleet of turboprop aircraft they can provide a modern and reliable service at competitive prices.
