Depending on whether your flight route with Air North is a southern or northern route, there are different baggage requirements which can be found on the Air North, Yukon’s Airline website.

Meals, Snacks and Drinks

Air North has received numerous awards specifically related to the quality of its food. Air North prepares freshly made snacks and meals for every flight in their kitchen in Whitehorse. These snacks and meals, as well as the complimentary beverages, are free. There is an Air North kitchen team that works every day to prepare the meals. Chef Michael Bock is the head chef; he works with a team of 20 employees to guarantee that passengers will receive some of the best home-cooked meals they have ever received on a flight. The Whitehorse kitchen accommodates a variety of dietary requirements, including vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and dairy-free. If you have any special dietary requirements, just let the airline know 24 hours before your flight or when you book your ticket. Air North serves other complimentary snacks and desserts.

In-Flight Amenities

Air North, known for its excellent customer service, has managed to gain all accolades without any in-flight entertainment. Most recently, the airline showed its good sense of humor on the topic by releasing an April Fool’s Day video touting a new form of in-flight amenities: Elevated Entertainment. The airline claimed it would have mimes, clowns, live singers and Shakespearean actors on all of its flight. But alas, the video was only a prank, and the airline, for now, still sticks to the classics for in-flight entertainment: magazines. The inflight magazine, OUTthere, is a cultural travel magazine that is available on every flight.
