Gem Air is a commuter airline based in Salmon, Idaho, United States. It is owned by the former owners of Salmon Air. They sold the Salmon Air name to McCall Aviation, but kept their operating certificate. When their non-compete clause with McCall Aviation expired, they began full operations again, under the same certificate, but with the new Gem Air name.[2]


Gem Air provides on-demand flights to the Idaho backcountry as well as multiple towns and cities within the state, including Boise, Salmon, Stanley, and McCall. Scheduled service is offered September-May between Boise and Salmon.
