2014 Arctic Winter Games
Arctic Winter Games is an exciting time for many northerners as the best athletes the Arctic has to offer congregate for a test of strength, skill and the human spirit. As a company that prides itself in supporting a broad range of sporting events in northern communities, First Air congratulates Team Nunavik, Team Nunavut and Team NWT for making it to the 2014 Arctic Winter Games in Fairbanks, Alaska.
We understand the importance of developing strong and healthy communities, and investing in our youth is certainly one of the best ways to make it happen. Each year, First Air contributes over $40 million into Canada’s northern economy, much of which goes towards enhancing the lives and well-being of our fellow northerners.
As the Arctic Winter Games play on, it is highly rewarding to know that at First Air, we have played a part in the success and growth of our young athletes and their communities.
17th Annual Nunavut Mining Symposium
This April will see the 17th Annual Nunavut Mining Symposium take place in Iqaluit, Nunavut. It’s a venue where industry,
community members, regulatory bodies and governments gather to do business, offer trade shows and talks. We look forward to participating in this important sector of northern development.
With our Boeing 767 Super Freighter, twin Hercules aircraft and a versatile fleet of passenger/cargo aircraft, First Air is always ready to take on any job that is required to keep the northern economy moving. These types of investments that we have made within our company support a diverse range of industries, and we recognize the success of industries in the north
also mean successful and viable communities.
I have been with First Air for 1 year now, and I have seen why this airline has been in business for nearly 70 years. In anything that we do and support across the north, whether it’s the mining sector, the film industry or sporting events, it is always about the people. You have made First Air successful.
Thank you and I look forward to seeing you on board First Air, The Airline of the North.
