Temporary  travel restrictions

Temporary changes to our passenger schedule, beginning Thursday, April 2, 2020

In response to decreased passenger demand due to the current travel restrictions put in place by the Government of Nunavut, Government of the Northwest Territories and the Kativik Regional Government, we have temporarily adjusted our passenger schedule.

You can find our most recent schedule here.

As noted:

  • We have decreased our frequency of passenger service on our Montreal-Kuujjuaq and Mackenzie Valley routes.
  • We have temporarily suspended our Trans-Arctic route
  • We have added a new connecting flights between Cambridge Bay, Rankin Inlet and Iqaluit
  • We have adjusted our operating days and flight times on our Ottawa-Iqaluit route and all other Nunavut routes

These changes will not affect our cargo operations.  We have taken steps to ensure the continued flow of food, medical supplies and other essential goods to all communities we serve and will carefully monitor our capacity.

Changes will be gradually rolled out beginning on Thursday, April 2, with the new schedule fully in place by Sunday, April 5. If you have any questions about your upcoming travel, please contact us at 1.800.267.1247 or
