Air North Review
One of the highlights of my recent trip to the Yukon to view the Northern Lights in Whitehorse, was the privilege of flying Air North. Whenever I travel, I always seek out local companies and I’m so happy I decided to fly to Whitehorse on Air North.
I increasingly hate to fly and a big part of this reason is that the process of flying has become so stressful and the people working on these flights are often apathetic or disgruntled. I can’t remember the last time I truly had excellent customer service flying economy, but from the check-in, Air North employees made us feel taken care of.
I recall meeting a guy on my flight to Vancouver who lived there and interestingly, he said he never heard of Air North before! But this is likely because Air North is based in Whitehorse and is a Yukon-based airline that flies around parts of Canada. Upon arriving in Whitehorse, our tour guide picked us up and reassured us that Air North is not only an excellent airline, but the most beloved airline of the region and is around 50% owned by the First Nation people!
In flight, the flight attendants were so freaking nice it felt weird. They offered us fresh made hot sandwiches, came around with fresh cheesecake slices, AND came down the aisle with a silver platter of little candies. I realized that much of my anxiety of flying is calmed by flight attendants who smile more often and make you feel like a person rather than a piece of cargo. I guess because it’s a local airline and isn’t quite as large as Air Canada and the others, they can afford more attention to these kinds of details. I definitely recommend Air North when flying to Canada!
