Nunavut pays more than $2M a week to keep airlines in the air

Nunavut is spending $2.25 million to keep Northern Airlines flying despite the fact that the seats aren’t being used.

A travel restriction is in place to try and stop any outbreak of the Covid-19 virus.

As of this posting, Nunavut remains the only jurisdiction in Canada without a confirmed case of the new coronavirus.

The emergency money is being spent to ensure the airline’s survival in a region of Canada where air travel is essential.
