For almost 40 years, we've flown our passengers to great destionations in the Yukon, British Columbia, Alberta, Northwest Territories, and Ontario. In that time, we've become known for our authentic Yukon hospitality and committment to a world-class customer experience.

Our primary focus is on delivering air travel that is safe, convenient, reliable, and affordable.

Using modern Boeing 737 aircraft, we connect Whitehorse-our home base-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.

Air North also offers charter and cargo services.
