Getting Here

Iqaluit is accessible by air and sea only. We serve as an air gateway to all the Baffin region communities, to Greenland (during the summer months), to Kuujjuaq, Northern Quebec, and western points, such as Rankin Inlet and Yellowknife. Located at the crossroads of both polar and high North Atlantic air routes, our international airport can handle any type of aircraft. 

The easiest way to get to Iqaluit is on one of the daily jets that come from  Ottawa. There are also flights from Edmonton, Montreal, Yellowknife and others. Canadian North  offer a majority of flight services.
