Getting To the Yukon in Canada

AIR FLIGHTS TO THE YUKON

Whitehorse, Yukon has an International airport so getting to Canada’s scenic Yukon Territory by air flight is extremely easy. You can arrive for your Yukon fishing trip by air via Air Canada, Westjet, and Air North. Other airlines serving Whitehorse are Condor and Edelweiss Air. You may arrive on the morning flight but we prefer our clients arrive a day early for camp provisioning and sightseeing opportunities.

Flights to the Yukon from the U.S. and Canada:

Air North
The Yukon’s airline owned and operated by Yukoners. Renowned for great service, competitive prices, and reliable baggage service. Flights connect from Vancouver, Calgary, and Edmonton.

Air Canada
Canada’s largest carrier. Multiple flights connect from Vancouver on a daily basis. Air Canada can be booked with points but has a bad track record with us due to their constantly losing rod cases. If you decide to book with Air Canada do not be surprised when your gear does not arrive in Whitehorse. Unfortunately, we cannot be responsible for extra floatplane expenses due to Air Canada’s inability to do a good job. If Air Canada loses your luggage and an extra floatplane flight occurs due to this then you will be expected to cover the costs.

West Jet

New into Whitehorse, Westjet has an excellent reputation and great prices. Westjet begins flights from Vancouver British Columbia to Whitehorse May 17, 2012 and ends flights October 27, 2012. We recommend booking direct with Westjet for the lowest fares.

 

Flights to the Yukon from Europe, Australia and Asia:

Air Canada
Multiple international flights connect from Vancouver via Toronto, Montreal and Halifax on a daily basis.

Condor Airlines
This is a direct flight form Frankfurt Germany, once every Sunday during the summer months. Condor Airlines is a great way to get to The Yukon from Europe!

Australia and Asia into Canada usually involve Air Canada. Talk to your travel agent or go online to check for the best deals.
