South Nahanni Airways operates a diverse fleet of multi and single engine aircraft on wheels, skis and floats. Whether you need business travel anywhere in Canada, or need to get to that favorite fishing, hunting or canoeing destination, let South Nahanni Air’s experienced pilots get you there safely. Since 1972 South Nahanni Airways has operated out of Fort Simpson, flying into extremely remote locations all over the Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Yukon and beyond and takes pride in maintaining the highest safety standards.

South Nahanni Airways is proud of their de Havilland Twin Otter. This world renowned short take off and landing (STOL) aircraft is ideal for the remote and challenging terrain of northern Canada and the rugged mountains of BC.  The DHC-6 Twin Otter is a turbine powered passenger/cargo aircraft. This multi-purpose twin-engine, high-wing aircraft easily converts from comfortable seating for 17 passengers to full cargo configuration capable of handling large and/or awkward loads.  The Twin Otter can be operated on wheels, floats, and skis. It is rugged, versatile and yet operates very well in both the Instrument and VFR environments. It has a 4000 pound short haul payload and a 3000 payload on long trips

Have a large group or a lot of cargo to move? Let our Britten-Norman Islander help you out. With seating for 8 and a great useful load, the Islander will haul almost anything to wherever you need it. With extreme short strip capabilities it can get you in and out of just about anywhere.

Our fleet is rounded off with our Cessna 206’s, 185 and 172. Our 185 is operated on floats in the summer and wheel skis in the winter. This multipurpose aircraft is capable of hauling you, a friend and a canoe into the Nahanni National Park for an adventure of a lifetime. The always reliable 206, with a capacity for 5 passengers and a useful load of over 1000lbs is also capable of off strip and short strip performance.
