What Our Passengers Have to Say
Just flew home from Whitehorse today on the Ottawa flight. I now enjoy bragging to my friends in the south about your excellent company, flights, service and most of all, understanding. As always, the meal was excellent. Thank you, I hope you will always fly my favourite skies.
Dear Air North, I just received the magazines that you sent to read to my husband. How very thoughtful of you and he has enjoyed some of the articles. I wish you flew to more destinations in Canada because I would use your company every time I flew. You really get customer support and care. You are an amazing company and you are without a doubt - our favourite.
I was surprisingly impressed with our flight to Whitehorse from Vancouver today. First free checked luggage, second ham & cheese sandwich, third hot coffee, fourth warm cookie and last the excellent work of our flight crew. Thanks to all.
