Air North, Yukon’s Airline, is proud to announce the addition of their first-ever Boeing 737-8AL aircraft to their fleet.

This next-generation lease from Aircraft Engine Lease Finance, Inc. (AELF) marks a significant milestone for the long-standing Yukon carrier.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Air North to our growing client base,” said Joe Cirillo, Head of Global Marketing for AELF.

Fleet Transition

“Air North’s commitment to the Yukon communities and its rich history make them a fantastic partner. We’re honored to support Joe Sparling and his team as they continue Air North’s legacy of growth and prosperity.”

Founded in 1977, Air North has consistently provided vital air service to the Yukon for over 45 years. Their fleet has steadily evolved, transitioning from single-engine beginnings to turboprops in the 80s and 90s.

The move towards jet aircraft then saw the introduction of Boeing 737 classics in the early 2000s. AELF’s lease of this new Boeing 737-8AL marks a new step for Air North’s fleet modernization.

“This new aircraft aligns perfectly with our commitment to environmental responsibility,” said Joseph Sparling, CEO and co-founder of Air North.

“The Boeing 737-8AL boasts a contemporary, comfortable cabin for our passengers, while its fuel efficiency and cost savings allow us to deliver exceptional value for years to come.”
