First Air, The Airline of the North, serves the cargo and travel needs of more northern communities than any other air carrier in Canada. Our scheduled service carries approximately 225,000 passengers and over 22 Million kilograms of freight and mail over its vast and comprehensive route system. Today, taking a shopping trip south or flying abroad for vacation takes only a matter of hours, seven days of the week. Important equipment, parts or goods, now often arrive the same day they are ordered.
From the Yukon in the West to Nunavut in the East, our extensive route system covers an amazing 15,500 route miles, connecting 29 northern communities with the major centres of Ottawa, Montreal, Winnipeg and Edmonton to the South.
Sport North and First Air are pleased to announce a corporate partnership between the two organizations (until 2011). First Air is very excited at the opportunity of working closer with Sport North and all their Territorial Sport Organizations, in building a strong and lasting partnership throughout theNorthwest Territories. First Air has always been committed to supporting youth in the communities so they all have an equal opportunity to compete in sport at all levels.
