  • Print

YELLOWKNIFE - This summer will see new a new air travel option to the Arctic, with Canadian North Airlines planning weekly non-stop flights between Iqaluit and Halifax, with continuing service to St. John's N.L.

The flights will run from June 20 until Sept. 5, with the possibility of extending the season depending on how well they are received, the airline said.

The Yellowknife-based airline will use Boeing 737-300 aircraft. Flights will operate on Fridays.

The service will provide "greater access for investment, business travel, tourism and freight, enabling continued economic development across Nunavut," said Canadian North president Steve Hankirk.

One-way fares for Iqaluit-Halifax will be $899, Iqaluit-St. John's $999 and Halifax-St. John's $159, said airline spokesman Scott Weatherall.

The non-stop flights will mean that "for people doing rotating shift work and things like that, they can fly out of Iqaluit and be home in Halifax in time for a late supper," said Weatherall.
