How Keewatin Air's services are essential:

Medical transport in the Canadian Arctic is Keewatin Air's specialty, whether that involves moving passengers with medical needs on charter aircraft or transporting critically ill patients via air ambulance. The company has invested significantly in the infrastructure, equipment and staff required to provide around-the-clock medevac services in the North and, over the past 50 years, has accumulated hundreds of thousands of hours of medevac airtime. Keewatin Air combines that in-depth knowledge of Arctic operations with a deep appreciation of the cultural uniqueness of the people of Nunavut.
