NUNATSIAQ NEWS
Here’s Canadian North’s new 737-300 aircraft parked in front of gate 15 at the Ottawa airport early on the morning of Jan. 2, prior to its inaugural flight to Iqaluit, which took off at 1:13 p.m. and landed in Iqaluit at 3:56 p.m. The airline has converted the jet into a combi aircraft capable of operating in three configurations: the one they’re most likely to use in the Baffin region is 80 passenger seats plus three air cargo pallets.
