An Inuit owned company, Uppik Aviation will provide air charter services in the Nunavik region.

"We're very pleased to be able to offer air charter service to the expanding resource sector in the region," commented George Berthe, President of Developpements Aputik and the newly formed Uppik Aviation. "Nolinor is no stranger in the aviation industry, and our partnership will provide more options for passengers and cargo to move by air into and across the North"

President of Nolinor Aviation, Jacques Prud'homme commented, " Nolinor is in the middle of our largest expansion in our 20 year history, and we are very excited to announce the formation of Uppik Aviation. We look forward to building even stronger relationships with the people and enterprises doing business throughout the North."

Nolinor is in the process of adding to it's fleet of 737 jet aircraft, with delivery of it's fourth jet scheduled for later this month and more later this year. They recently acquired a certified bulk fuel hauling system for it's 737 jets, allowing for the capability to deliver fuel products to remote sites.
