8199400 Canada Inc. operating as
Summit Air is an airline that provides executive and general passenger and cargo [2 ] air charter throughout the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Yukon from its base at Yellowknife.
History [ edit ]
Summit Air started in
Atlin, British Columbia in 1987. In January 2001, the base of operations was moved to Yellowknife. The Ledcor Group of Companies became a partner on June 1, 2009. In 2013/2014 several aircraft operated by Arctic Sunwest Charters were re-branded as Summit Air.
In January 2015 the airline acquired an Avro RJ85 aircraft which has been wet-leased to
First Air for use on services from Yellowknife. A second Avro RJ85 has since been ordered. [3 ]
