Canadian North has taken flight with its next generation of service. The airline recently launched the Boeing 737-700 on the Montreal to Kuujjuaq route, marking a significant upgrade for passengers.

This state-of-the-art aircraft boasts impressive fuel efficiency and extended range compared to Canadian North’s previous Boeing 737-300 and 400 models.

Passengers can look forward to a more comfortable journey with features like ample overhead bin space, convenient in-seat power outlets, and the ability to accommodate medical stretchers if required.

Additionally, the 737-700 promises enhanced reliability with less daily maintenance and improved parts accessibility.

“We’re thrilled to elevate the travel experience for everyone flying with us,” Canadian North expressed in a statement.

“This modern and comfortable aircraft represents a positive investment in Kuujjuaq, a cornerstone of our northern network.”

President and CEO Shelly De Caria emphasized the airline’s commitment to reliable service: “Our top priority is providing passengers with a dependable flight schedule between Montreal and Kuujjuaq.”

“We appreciate the continued support of our customers as we strive to improve operations for everyone we serve.”

Replacing the 737-400

The new 737-700 replaces the older 737-400s previously used on this route. Kuujjuaq, the largest community in Nunavik, is a vital transportation hub situated on the west bank of the Koksoak River, roughly 50 kilometers inland from Ungava Bay.

“We’re particularly impressed with the 737-700’s dedicated stretcher configuration,” remarked Larry N. Watt, Executive Director of Tulattavik Health Center.

“This permanent setup will significantly enhance healthcare delivery and patient comfort. We commend Canadian North’s dedication to improving healthcare services in the north.”

Canadian North will now continue to offer daily flights between Montreal and Kuujjuaq with the new aircraft.

Connecting Canada’s Northern Skies

Canadian North is a key player in Canada’s aviation sector, particularly for communities within the vast northern regions.

Wholly Inuit-owned by Makivik Corporation and the Inuvialuit Development Corporation, the airline boasts a rich history dating back to the 1940s through its predecessor companies.

Canadian North plays a crucial role in connecting these communities to southern hubs like Montreal, Ottawa, and Edmonton.

The airline extends its service footprint to Nuuk, Greenland through an interline partnership with Air Greenland. It deploys a versatile fleet of Boeing 737, ATR 42 and ATR 72 Freighter aircraft.

Canadian North is also the premier charter services provider for large resource sector clients requiring fly-in/fly-out (FIFO) air services. Additionally, it operates flights across North America and beyond for sports teams, cruise lines, tour operators and many others.
