SOME COOL FLIGHT NEWS FOR ARCTIC TRAVELLERS
When Canadian North's Airlines President and CEO Michael Rodyniuk was at an Open House in Yellowknife last Friday evening, he said an announcement about a new route was imminent.
Today came the news Canadian North is launching a new route, the Arctic Capital Express, to start on June 8.
With bookings available now, the Arctic Capital Express will provide convenient same-day travel between Ottawa, Iqaluit, and Yellowknife in either direction every Tuesday and Thursday, with connections in Edmonton and Calgary to Yellowknife.
Canadian North passengers will be able to reach their destination in a single day on this direct express route, reducing the need for overnight stops.
Canadian North is a 100% Inuit-owned airline that connects people and delivers essential goods throughout Canada’s North.
Rodyniuk also told those assembled at the Elks Lodge that the airline is exploring code-share agreements, with details to come this summer.
He also said Canadian North will be modernizing its fleet, but will retain its Boeing 737-400C fixed 'combi' aircraft that can be used to carry both passengers and/or cargo.
Having reliable cargo transportation options are extremely important to Northern businesses and communities.
