Hawkair (Hawkair Aviation Services) is a regional airline based in Terrace, British Columbia, Canada. It operates scheduled and charter regional passenger services in British Columbia and Alberta. Its main base is Northwest Regional Airport with a hub at Vancouver International Airport.
In March 2010, Hawkair was purchased by 580741 BC, the parent company of Central Mountain Air.
Hawkair Aviation Services was established and started operations in 1994 as an air freight service operating out of Terrace. In 2000 it started air passenger services, initially between Vancouver and Terrace. It quickly expanded to serve most of the airports of northern British Columbia. In October 2005 it was forced to file for protection under the Company Creditors' Arrangement Act (Bankruptcy protection), and reduced the number of aircraft in its fleet from 5 to 3.
The first plane it owned was a Bristol Freighter. In 2004, this plane took its last flight to an air museum in Wetaskiwin, Alberta. This was the last flight flown by a Bristol Freighter.
In April 2007, Hawkair announced that it would be resuming service to Smithers on May 21, 2007. The service operates daily to/from Vancouver.
