The airport is classified as an airport of entry by NAV CANADA and is staffed by the Canada Border Services Agency.

There are regular flights going and arriving into the airport, but they come almost entirely from Inuvik.[1]

Gruben's Transport Ltd, that was passed down to him from his father Eddie Gruben and is still in business to this day.[citation needed]
