Keeping Our Neighbours Connected

From our base at Yellowknife’s YZF Airport, we fly scheduled daily passenger and freight service to the regional centres of Fort Simpson and Hay River, and to four other Indigenous communities.


Air Tindi proudly connects people to some of the most remarkable and remote destinations within Canada's Northwest Territories. From the stunning landscapes to the cultural richness, we play a crucial role in facilitating access to these destinations, and we warmly invite you to explore the wonders of Northern Canada.

Fort Simpson - Łíídlı Kųę

Fort Simpson is the NWT’s oldest community with fur trading roots dating back to 1803. Its First Nations name – Liidlii Kue – refers to its location where the Liard and Mackenzie Rivers meet. This picturesque village of about 2,000 is the gateway to spectacular Nahanni National Park, the adventure destination of a lifetime for trekking and canoeing. More info

Gameti 09

Gamètì – Rabbit net Place

This sandy point halfway between Great Bear and Great Slave Lakes was a favourite Tłı̨chǫ hunting camp before elders chose it as the site for a new, traditionally-based community. Today, this placid community of about 300 hosts modern amenities including a school, year-round airstrip and power. An ice road connects Gamètì in the winter, otherwise it depends on year round Air Tindi service.  More info

Hayr River welco-2

Hay River

Labelling itself as the Hub of the North, this town on the sandy southern shore of vast Great Slave Lake is indeed where air, rail, road and marine transportation merge. The serene Hay River runs through the community of 3,500, with nearby waterfalls, excellent camping and fishing, and a beautiful 9-hole golf course among its attractions.  More info

Łutsel K'e – Place of the Cisco

The breathtaking red cliffs of Great Slave Lake’s East Arm, and the newly-created Thaidene Nene National Park Reserve, are icons of this community of 300 located an hour flight east of Yellowknife. In the Dënesųłiné Chipewyan language, its name means the place of the sardine-sized cisco fish, but the East Arm’s deep cold waters are renowned for trophy lake trout. Neighbouring Frontier Lodge is a modern, all inclusive destination for anglers. More info


Wekweètì – Rock Lake

Once a busy winter hunting camp for Tlicho harvesters, families gradually made it their permanent home from the 1960s. Close to the Barrenlands and the nearest community to diamond mines, Wekweètì is nested along the Snare River and hosts a six-hole golf course on sand fairways, hotel and lodge for visitors. More info


Whatí – Marten Lake

Whati, on the edge of Lac la Martre, has been a traditional harvesting area for the Tłı̨chǫ First Nation for centuries. Its location on the eastern shore of the NWT’s third largest lake hosts abundant land and bird life, spectacular trophy sport fishing, and picture-worthy Whati Falls on the La Martre River. This gentle community of about 500 leads a largely traditional lifestyle. More info



Tucked around the Precambrian Shield rocks on the north shore of Great Slave Lake, the city hosts a remarkable range of services, stores, restaurants and recreation opportunities for a city of only 22,000. It is also one of the world’s most sought-after winter destinations for experiencing the magic of the Aurora Borealis, and in summer, for sport fishing and adventure travel across the Arctic. We’re served daily by four Canadian airlines, and Air Tindi’s regional schedule connects you with six other communities in the surrounding region. More info
