Committed to servicing remote northern Canada

Keewatin Air has operated in the rugged Canadian Arctic for over 50 years, logging over 120,000 hours of medevac airtime in some of the most challenging environmental conditions in the world.

Although we operate charter airline services, our main focus is and has always been medical travel.

Whether it is moving passengers with medical needs on our charter aircraft or transporting a critically ill patient on our air ambulance, we have made medical travel our specialty.

Keewatin Air is committed to provision of the best possible air services in Northern Canada.

From our start in 1971, Keewatin Air LP (KAL) has been guided by and influenced by the learnings of the Inuit culture.

As the primary provider of Medevac and Air Ambulance services for the Government of Nunavut, KAL seeks to engaged with government and community leaders to support the strengthening of the role of Elders in addressing social problems and issues in the North. The Inuit Societal Values Project is an important part of this goal.
