Checking In

In an effort to make your journey more convenient, we have restored online check in. To comply with Government of Canada regulations regarding the carriage of passengers, there will some additional steps to complete.

Passengers are now required to complete a health screening questionnaire online in order to complete the check in process. This is completed by agreeing to 7 statements mandated by Transport Canada.  Upon successful completion of the questionnaire, you will be authorized to check in for your flight. If you are unable to agree with the 7 statements, we are obligated by Transport Canada to refuse to board you until your health screening indicates it is appropriate to do so.

Those passengers who choose to check in online will be required to conduct additional temperature screening at the gate for the safety of our passengers, staff and communities. Please contact us should you have any questions or concerns with your travel experience with Air North.

Online Check-in Form

Available 24 hours prior to scheduled departure time until one hour prior to departure.

Effective 20 April 2020, the Government of Canada requires all passengers to have a removable, non-medical mask or face covering to cover their mouth and nose during air travel. During the check-in process, passengers are required to demonstrate they have the necessary non-medical mask or face covering.

Identification Policy

Before you leave for the airport, there are a few things to keep in mind: all travellers aged 18 or older flying within Canada are required by the Government of Canada to present identification at check-in and prior to boarding their flight. Make sure you remember your ID before leaving home!

Please ensure that the name and spelling on your ticket or itinerary match your identification - if they don't, we will have to refuse boarding. Make sure you contact us immediately if your name is misspelt.

We're looking forward to welcoming you on-board your flight!

Important Advice
  • If you’re uncertain about whether your flight will receive security screening, we recommend that you use the required times for flights that are screened—check in at least 45 minutes prior to the flight and arrive at the airport 90 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time.
  • At the airport, please have your photo ID ready for the check-in agent, and make yourself familiar with our baggage guidelines. If you have speciality baggage requirements (such as oversize items), we recommend allowing an extra 30 minutes for check-in.
  • All passengers must be present at the gate no less than 15 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time. We may deny boarding to any passenger who are not at the gate before the 15 minute cutoff.
