Air Canada is announcing today that direct flights from British Columbia to Yellowknife will be available.
The special daily service will begin December 15th, 2017, and will run until April 1st, 2018.
The President of Passenger Airlines at Air Canada, Benjamin Smith, says the daily flights between Vancouver and Yellowknife will be an excellent addition to the already existing Edmonton and Calgary flights.
“These new non-stop flights will shave off almost four hours of round-trip travel time for customers travelling between Canada’s west coast and the Northwest Territories.”
