In the fall of 2017, our parent company, Exchange Income Corporation (TSX: EIF) made the decision to join Bearskin Airlines and Perimeter Aviation to strengthen both airlines and facilitate and encourage continued growth. This merger included a mandate to keep the best of these two northern aviation icons and together explore and develop new offerings and services for our customers. The merger was completed at Dec 31, 2018.
Although technically Bearskin Airlines (the legal business entity) no longer exists, a decision was also made by Exchange Income Corporation to continue operating the Bearskin Brand of service within the new larger (Perimeter Aviation) airline.
Connecting Horizons - Bringing Perimeter Aviation and Bearskin Airlines together allows for enhanced travel opportunities on both airlines throughout a much broader region by making one reservation, using one ticket and accessing one low fare.
For Bearskin customers who may not be familiar with Perimeter Aviation, we look forward to welcoming you aboard one of Perimeter Aviation’s flights. Established in 1960, Perimeter Aviation has grown into a diversified regional airline providing scheduled flight services for many remote communities in Manitoba and NW Ontario.
Our merged airline maintains bases in Winnipeg, Thompson, Sioux Lookout and Thunder Bay serving the travel and shipping needs of more than 33 communities in Northern Ontario and Manitoba.
Whether you are customer of Perimeter Aviation or Bearskin Airlines, our routes and airlines are now considered as one, working together to serve you better.
