On July 26, four development corporations from Na-Cho Nyak Dun, Kluane, Carcross/Tagish and Selkirk First Nations announced a partnership with Alkan Air to support the provision of medevac services to Yukon communities.
“With this partnership we are increasing Yukon First Nation equity participation in the provision of this essential service and we are excited to see this partnership continue to grow,” said Jani Djokic, CEO of Na-Cho Nyak Dun Development Corporation. Djokic is also the chairperson of the newly created entity called the Yukon First Nations Air Leasing Limited Partnership.
This new partnership purchased two of Alkan Air’s King Air 350 aircraft on June 22. Alkan Air has a long history in the Yukon, with a flight school and a long-held contract for Yukon’s medevac services for over 30 years.
