What Our Passengers Have to Say
All the guys working on the Whistle Bend Care Facility from BC/Alberta that have flown Air North have never had one bad thing to say and have enjoyed flying with them. And love the cookies.
Thank you, Air North for the very best of service. After 3 beautiful weeks in Dawson I was happy to be on a flight home with such lovely people who you employ. The sandwiches were good choices, fresh and delicious and the flight was absolutely stellar. I know why I like Air North and so will my friends, thank you all!
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.
