- Air North, the Canadian carrier originating in the country’s north-western territory of Yukon, strengthened its domestic network with two new services from its Whitehorse (YXY) base on 6 February, both operated utilising the airline’s 122-seat 737-500s. With the shortest sector being the 1,107-kilometre service to Yellowknife (YZF), and the longest being inaugurated to Ottawa (YOW) at 4,152-kilometre via Yellowknife (YZF), both routes are operated twice-weekly, on Thursdays and Sundays. The airline's new airport pairs will face no competition from other carriers.
