Air North, Yukon’s Airline would like to wish you and your family all the best this holiday season and in the new year.

Don’t fly on Yukon Time.

At this time of year there are a lot of people travelling, which means lines are longer at check-in and security—especially as passengers must show their proof of vaccination at check-in and when asked by CATSA.

Make sure you give yourself plenty of time for both by arriving at least 90 minutes prior to your flight's scheduled departure time – ideally two hours. Everything will fly by when you’re relaxed!

Have your ID and proof of vaccination ready.

Make sure you bring your photo ID — your driver’s license or your passport. Any travellers over the age of 18 require photo ID. The name on your ID must match the name on the boarding pass.

Just because it fits in a sled doesn’t mean it’ll fit on-board!

Although we allow two complimentary checked items of baggage at no extra charge, there are some guidelines you need to follow. We strongly encourage you to read the information carefully to avoid overweight or excess baggage fees.

Make sure only your loved ones unwrap the gifts.

By keeping your gifts unwrapped, you save security agents the hassle of unwrapping a gift they don’t get to receive. As packages will need to be inspected in airport security, arriving with your packages unwrapped will keep the lines moving smoothly and keep you from wrapping your gifts twice! A great idea is to use gift bags to hold your presents.

Be prepared – it’s the holidays!

Airlines do their very best to stay on schedule, but increased traffic and unpredictable weather can sometimes cause delays. Pack a good book or deck of cards in your carry-on to keep you entertained. It’s also a good idea to pack a ‘lost luggage emergency kit’ with a change of clothes, phone charger, and CATSA-compliant toiletries and medication – just in case.
