Watson Lake to Whitehorse Flight Service
On September 12, 2016, Alkan Air was proud to launch regularly scheduled flight service between Whitehorse and Watson Lake twice a week and better connect the community for the first time in decades.
It has been Alkan Air’s sincere pleasure to serve the community over the past two years; however, current passenger volumes are not permitting regularly scheduled flight service to be operationally viable. As a result, the company has made the difficult decision to cease regular flight service to Watson Lake on September 30, 2018.
Please note, that until that time, service will continue on Mondays and Fridays as per the schedule, details and rates below.
Alkan Air extends its sincere appreciation to the Town of Watson Lake, to Liard First Nation and to all community and visitor service users.
The company also thanks its partner, Budget Whitehorse, for providing rental vehicles at Watson Lake Airport (including one-way rentals so that passengers can fly one way and return by car) and to our Watson Lake shuttle service provider.
We hope to see you on board between now and the end of September and wish everyone a very productive and successful summer season.
