Business and Corporate Charter Flights
Traveling throughout the Northwest Territories can be a daunting challenge. If you need to travel throughout the north visiting multiple communities, but only need to spend an hour or so at each stop - it may take you two or three days using scheduled airlines. When you fly private charter flights however, you set your own travel schedule while the aircraft waits for you at each stop. If you are arriving from a southern province, you can fly scheduled airlines into Yellowknife and then take your charter flight from there. This service is great for government workers, mining and exploration crews and contractors
