Scheduled passenger service was offered in the past by Canadian Pacific Air Lines and its successors CP Air and Canadian Airlines International to Vancouver, British Columbia; Whitehorse, Yukon; Fort Nelson, British Columbia; Fort St. John, British Columbia and Prince George, British Columbia. CP Air served the airport with Boeing 737-200 jetliners in the mid 1970s.; however, this jet service ended as a result of deregulation.
Passenger service was also provided in the mid 1990s by several regional and commuter airlines such as Central Mountain Air flying Beechcraft twin turboprop aircraft and Alkan Air operating Piper Navajo aircraft. The airport currently does not have any scheduled passenger airline service.
