First Air offers reduced fares to western Nunavut Inuit

CAMBRIDGE BAY—When First Air’s executive chairman, Johnny Adams, travelled to Cambridge Bay for the first time last Thursday to address the Kitikmeot Inuit Association’s annual general meeting, he had two objectives.

One was to offer, as a good-will gesture, a partnership that he said would provide reduced air fares for Inuit in western Nunavut.

The other was to make a business proposal: Adams said he’d like to explore a partnership with the KIA, similar to that under discussion with the business arm of the Qikiqtani Inuit Association , to invest in the proposed merger of First Air, owned by Makivik Corp., and Canadian North, owned by the Inuvialuit Development Corp.

Adams told the KIA delegates the proposed merger will mean improvements for air travel in the Kitikmeot region, but first the Competition Bureau has to approve the new venture, made official last month , he said.
