Buffalo Airways launches Boeing 737-300SF freighter service between Yellowknife and Edmonton

Edmonton International Airport made this announcement:

Buffalo Airways, a renowned leader in aviation services in Northern Canada, is thrilled to announce their latest expansion milestone at YEG. This announcement marks the first and only dedicated cargo-only/freighter route between YEG and Yellowknife on their customized Boeing 737-300SF “Special Freighter”. The dedicated 737 freighter service, connecting Edmonton to Yellowknife, will operate Monday through Friday, and will support the timely delivery of critical goods such as pharmaceuticals and healthcare, food and beverage, time-sensitive automotive and other manufactured parts and retail.

Northern Canada has long relied on Buffalo Airways for the timely transportation of priority freight. Historically, these essential goods were transported by road to Hay River before being flown into Yellowknife. However, with the growing demand from customers, the current system has reached maximum capacity, both in terms of available space and time efficiency.

Buffalo Airways’ investment in this cutting-edge freighter reaffirms its commitment to providing efficient, reliable and innovative solutions for the unique logistical challenges faced in Northern Canada. With the Boeing 737-300SF “Special Freighter” in their fleet, Buffalo Airways is positioned to set a new standard for overnight freight services in the region.
