Hawkair was founded in 1994 as a remote area cargo service airline. In those days Hawkair flew mining equipment to isolated Goldmine sites in Northern BC.
In 2000, sensing an opportunity existed within the scheduled airline service industry in British Columbia, Hawkair transformed itself into a scheduled and charter service airline with the leasing of their first Dash-8 aircraft in August 2000. One month later, Hawkair was flying scheduled service between Terrace and Vancouver.
Hawkair’s route network includes Vancouver, Terrace, Kitimat, Dawson Creek, Kelowna and Prince George. In April of 2011, Hawkair moved its Vancouver-based operations from YVR’s smaller South Terminal to Vancouver International Airport Main Terminal.
Hawkair operates a fleet of four DeHavilland Dash-8 aircraft with seating capacity from 37 to 50 passengers. All aircraft offer guests the highest level of comfort, with onboard amenities including lavatory, galley and flight attendant. Hawkair’s friendly, helpful staff has earned Hawkair “Customer Service Company of the Year” awards from local Chambers of Commerce.
Hawkair now employs over 75 staff and crew, providing local jobs and supporting the region’s economy. We pride ourselves on giving back to the communities we serve. Hawkair generously provides sponsorship to numerous non-profit and community events on an annual basis.
