Nunavik, that area of Québec north of the 55th parallel, is home to approximately 10,000 citizens living in fourteen communities located along the eastern Hudson Bay coast, the southern shore of the Hudson Strait, and the Ungava coasts. As the region is without means of ground transportation, Air Inuit provides essential scheduled, charter, cargo and emergency transportation for the region, twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year.
Collectively owned by the Inuit of Nunavik through their participation in Makivik Corporation, the airline has successfully operated for more than thirty years in this charming and challenging operational environment. During this period, Air Inuit has accumulated more than 300,000 hours of airtime and carried more than 1,300,000 passengers through Nunavik skies. More recently, we've linked Nunavik and Schefferville with Montreal and Quebec City utilizing a Dash-8 commuter turboprop service that gets you there directly and comfortably.
The Board of Directors and the employees of the company wish to express our appreciation to our passengers for their support over the last quarter century. We look forward to continuing our history of providing you with safe, courteous and timely service, whatever your air transport needs might be.
