‘We are fully caught up heading into the holiday season,’ says spokesperson Andrew Pope
Holiday shipping times in Nunavut likely will not be affected by Iqaluit’s ongoing water emergency, says Canadian North spokesperson Andrew Pope.
Initially, the water emergency delayed non-essential shipping to Nunavut, with an announcement Oct. 18 that the airline was prioritizing the delivery of bottled water to Iqaluit.
That contributed to a delay in shipments to Iqaluit and smaller communities in Nunavut between mid-October and Nov. 22, Pope said.
So, Canadian North doubled the amount of cargo being shipped during the first two weeks of the water emergency, by collaborating with other airlines like CargoJet. This move helped clear that backlog.
