FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: NOVEMBER 3, 2015 Canadian North is pleased to announce that this week it will begin offering additional flights between Cambridge Bay and the Eastern Kitikmeot communities of Gjoa Haven, Taloyoak and Kugaaruk.

As a result of these changes, Canadian North customers in the Kitikmeot will now enjoy greater choice in travel days as well as improved cargo service.

In addition to the above flights, Canadian North also serves the Kitikmeot with codeshare flights between Yellowknife, Kugluktuk and Cambridge Bay, offered in agreement with First Air. This includes daily 737 jet service between Yellowknife and Cambridge Bay (with a stop in Kugluktuk on Fridays) as well as Dash-8 and ATR 42 service between these communities throughout other days of the week.

“We have welcomed the feedback from our customers and stakeholders about our Kitikmeot service and we have quickly implemented improvements in response to what we have heard,” said Peter McCart, Canadian North’s Senior Vice-President of Scheduled Services. “I’m confident our revised schedule will improve passenger and cargo service in the Kitikmeot. We will continue to look for opportunities to better meet the needs of our customers and communities.”
