Air North has made this announcement:
Air North, Yukon’s Airline has announced an addition to its route network to include twice weekly scheduled Boeing 737 jet service between Whitehorse, Yukon and Victoria, British Columbia. The new service will commence on May 18, 2018.
For a number of years, Air North, Yukon’s Airline has been providing Yukoners direct access to Victoria on its popular Thanksgiving weekend charter and other, one-off flights. The addition of Victoria to its regular schedule reflects the strong demand Yukoners have shown for the destination.
This route expansion follows the successful launch of scheduled service to Kelowna in 2013 and Yellowknife and Ottawa in 2014, demonstrating the company’s continued commitment to providing affordable outbound air travel for Yukoners and expanding inbound access for visitors, business travelers, friends and family.
The inaugural Victoria schedule has Monday and Friday afternoon departures from Whitehorse. Friday’s flight is direct to Victoria, returning to Whitehorse via Kelowna. Monday’s flight sees a brief stop in Kelowna for Victoria-bound passengers with direct return service to Whitehorse.
