August 2011: ACCDT: A First Air (BRS) chartered 737-210C (JT8D-9A HK) (414-21067, /75 C-GNWN) plane crashed on Saturday afternoon, August 20 in Canada's Arctic region, killing 4/8 of 4/11 on board, police said. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) said the plane went down near the hamlet of Resolute Bay in the Arctic territory of Nunavut. The First Air (BRS) charter flight was traveling from Yellowknife, (the capital of the Northwest Territories) to Resolute Bay, and was scheduled to continue on to Grise Fiord on Ellesmere Island.
(RCMP) Constable, Angelique Dignard said 12 people died in the crash and 3 people were injured. The 737-200 was carrying 15 people, including 4 crew members. Police did not have any information about the condition of the 3 survivors.
(BRS) said in a news release that the 737-200 last reported communication at 12:40 pm local time when it was about 5 miles/8 km from Resolute Bay airport. (BRS) said the Transportation Safety Board has been notified.
On its website, (BRS) says it serves the cargo and travel needs of remote northern communities in Canada's Arctic, connecting 30 northern communities with some of Canada's bigger cities. Resolute Bay is an Arctic waterway in Nunavut. The population of the hamlet is about 230, many of whom are aboriginal natives known as Inuit people. Resolute Bay, whose Inuit name, Quaasuittuq, means “place with no dawn,” is one of Canada’s most northerly communities, with sunless winter days and 24-hour sunlight in summer.
The crash site was a hill 1.2 miles/1.9 kms east of the airport and west of the Resolute Bay community. It is accessible by All Terrain Vehicle (ATV), but it is rough terrain, Dignard said. Dignard said local residents have been assisting with the rescue.
Hundreds of military personnel were already in the area to take part in the Canadian military's annual northern training exercise. Major Gerald Favre at the northern search and rescue center at Canadian Forces Base Trenton says its airplanes have been able to assist in the rescue operation because they were already in the area as part of the training exercise. He said the 737-200 that crashed was not part of the exercise.
Prime Minister, Stephen Harper is scheduled to travel to Resolute Bay on Monday for his annual trip to the Arctic, while Governor General David Johnston, who is currently touring the Arctic, was scheduled to hold events in Resolute Bay this weekend.

June 2012: Air Greenland (GRL), in partnership with First Air (BRS), has re-started flights between Nuuk (GOH) and Iqaluit (YFB), located on the south coast of Baffin Island at the head of Frobisher Bay in the Canadian territory of Nunavut. The two airlines hold the rights to the route, but it was last served in 2001 when First Air (BRS) flew the route. Now, it is to be operated by Air Greenland (GRL)’s 34-seat DHC-8-202 airplanes on Mondays and Fridays, until September 3. The flight will connect with (BRS)’s daily flights to Ottawa flown with a 737-200. The original start date of June 18 was brought forward by 3 days to enable a delegation from Greenland to attend an oil and gas conference in St John’s. Iqaluit was one of the chosen locations for cold weather trials of the Airbus (EDS) A380 back in February 2006.
February 2013: First Air ((IATA) Code: 7F, based at Carp (CYRP)) (BRS) has purchased two ex-(KLM) Royal Dutch Airlines ((IATA) Code: KL, based at Amsterdam Schiphol (AMS)) 737-400s (27232 and 27233) that have been in storage at Norwich (NWI) for some time. The 2 airplanes built in 1994 will likely be the 1st airplanes to start replacing First Air (BRS)'s aging fleet of 8 737-200 airplanes operating in various passenger, cargo and combi configurations.
April 2014: First Air (BRS) (dba: Bradley Air Services) recently added +2 ex-(KLM) Royal Dutch Airlines 737-400s, one a freighter, for services from Kuujjuaq and Winnipeg.

It en1tered service last September between Ottawa and Iqalut.
June 2015: First Air (BRS), the "Airline of the North," has taken delivery of its 1st ATR 42-500 (510, N510XA), Nordic Aviation leased. This airplane type will be replacing the older generation of ATR 42-300s, currently used for Northern operations and based at (BRS)’s hubs in Iqaluit and Yellowknife. First Air (BRS) currently operates 11 ATRs. The new ATR 42-500 series will gradually replace the ATR 42-300s on the scheduled passenger and combination routes. Several of the current ATR 42-300 series airplanes are scheduled to be upgraded to full freighter airplanes by 2016.
July 2015: Cargojet Airways (CJT) and First Air (BRS), the "Airline of the North," have expanded their commercial cooperation agreement, effective July 1, and extended their transportation agreement to June 30, 2025. This agreement further strengthens the strategic alliance between the two companies, and will allow for seamless air cargo transportation between the 14 major Canadian cities served on (CJT)’s overnight air cargo network, as well as the 32 communities served by First Air (BRS) in Canada’s North.

July 2018: Canadian North, First Air will Merge to serve Canadian Arctic" by Sean Broderick (firstname.lastname@example.org), July 9, 2018.
Canadian North (CNN) and First Air (BRS) have announced plans to merge (the latest step in the carriers’ efforts to combine air services to best meet the needs of communities in the Canadian arctic).
The 2 carriers plan to operate under the Canadian North (CNN) name with an administrative headquarters in Ottawa. “By merging these airlines, we look forward to new economic opportunities in Canada and internationally, and to better air services for Inuit across the circumpolar region,” the carriers said. The deal, which requires regulatory approval, is expected to close this year.
The 2 carriers provide key passenger and cargo connections between communities in Canada’s northern region as well as links to the country’s major metropolitan areas down south. Inuvialuit Development Corporation (IDC)-owned Canadian North (CNN) flies to 17 cities in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut, using Ottawa and Edmonton as southern gateways. First Air (BRS), which is owned by the Makivik Corporation, links 31 communities across Northern Canada and serves Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa and Montreal.
The 2 carriers have taken several approaches to pool resources and better meet the demands of the communities they serve. Talks to merge in 2014 ended without an agreement. That deal also would have set up a single carrier with an Ottawa headquarters. A year later, the carriers announced a code share deal, but First Air (BRS) ended it in 2017.
The goals behind the merger and code share deals are similar: stretch resources to provide more consistent, reliable service to northern Canada. The challenges are not going away, and in some ways (such as finding enough qualified pilots (FC)) they may be getting worse.
“Air service is not a luxury for Northerners. It is a vital lifeline which requires ongoing investment,” (IDC) Chair Patrick Gruben said.
Added Makivik President Charlie Watt: “The world is changing and we need to adapt to new realities.”
The 2 carriers said combining forces “is the only viable way” to meet air service demands in the Canadian north. A 2017 investigation by Canada’s Competition Bureau concluded that a merger’s benefits would outweigh its drawbacks. The investigation looked at allegations that the region’s carriers were colluding to keep fares high and discouraging competition.
In 2016, startup Go Sarvaq shut down shortly before its scheduled launch date, because in part low fares offered by competitors on its proposed routes. The bureau acknowledged the fare battle, but said it found no evidence of collusion among the incumbents. The affected pilot (FC) groups welcomed the merger plans. “The merger announcement is a positive step for both pilot (FC) groups,” said Bill Rodgers Chairman of (ALPA)’s Canadian North Master Executive Council (MEC). “The Canadian aviation industry is small, and a more efficient, stronger airline will be better suited to withstand the current economic pressures our two airlines have been facing.”
First Air (MEC) chairman and First Officer Charlene Hudy noted that the 2 pilot groups are of similar size and have shared understanding of the challenges faced by both carriers. “It’s a practical business decision for this merger to take place, and I am optimistic this will have a positive end result for our pilots in the long term,” she added.
First Air (BRS) operates a fleet of 20 airplanes, including 13 ATR 42s, 5 Boeing 737-400s, and 2 737-200s, Aviation Week’s Fleet Discovery data show.
Canadian North (CNN) has 16 airplanes including 10 737-300s, 3 737-200s, and 3 de Havilland Twin Otters.
In addition to its core northern region services, both carriers have sizable charter businesses.
