Air North introducing direct flights between Yellowknife and Vancouver in January
The flight will be offered twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays
Yellowknife will be getting another direct flight to Vancouver.
Air North will start running the new flights starting in mid-January, according to Air North spokesperson Ben Ryan. Air Canada also offers direct flights between the Northwest Territories capital and Vancouver.
The flight will be offered twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays.
Ryan said the airline is hoping to capitalize on aurora tourists and Yellowknifers wanting a weekend escape to Vancouver.
He said the flights will also make it easier for people from Yellowknife to get to Whitehorse, as there will be a short, one hour turn around between the flights in Vancouver.
