Keewatin Air has operated in the rugged Canadian Arctic for 40 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 primary focus is and has always been medical travel.

Our air medical program is recognized as one of the best air ambulance services in Canada.
Keewatin Air is committed to providing the best possible air services in Northern Canada. We have invested substantially in the infrastructure needed to provide around the clock medically oriented air services in Canada’s northern areas and the remote Arctic.
We will distinguish ourselves by being the leaders in safe, high quality aeromedical service and air transport, through a total commitment of improving service, listening to our customer needs, and an uncompromising integrity in everything we do
