Historical airline service
Commencing in the early 1940s, Canadian Pacific Air Lines and its successors CP Air and Canadian Airlines International operated scheduled passenger service to Vancouver, British Columbia; Edmonton, Alberta; Prince George, British Columbia; Whitehorse, Yukon; Fort Nelson, British Columbia; Grande Prairie, Alberta and Watson Lake, Yukon. CP Air served the airport with Boeing 737-200 jetliners during the 1970s with direct, no change of plane flights to all of the above destinations. Other Canadian Pacific flights into the airport over the years were operated with such twin engine prop aircraft as the Lockheed Lodestar, the Douglas DC-3 and the Convair 240 as well as with the larger, four engine Douglas DC-6B propliner and Bristol Britannia turboprop.
