Air North (4N, Whitehorse International) has taken delivery of its first B737-800 as it revives its plans to renew the B737 Classic fleet, first made before the Covid-19 pandemic but then put on hold during the crisis.

C-FNYA (msn 37960) was ferried from storage at Marana to Kelowna on September 6, then still registered as N191TS. It was re-registered under its current marks in Canada on September 26. The 12-year-old aircraft remains under maintenance at Kelowna airport, Flightradar24 ADS-B data shows.

Chief executive and owner Joe Sparling told ch-aviation in 2021 that Air North would be returning to its earlier fleet renewal plans. He confirmed that the airline will induct the B737-800 into revenue service in spring 2024 to "support the eventual retirement of some of our classics".

The ch-aviation fleets module shows that the carrier currently operates a narrowbody jet fleet of one B737-400 (31.3 years old) and four B737-500s (30.7 years old on average). Air North also operates one ATR42-320, one ATR42-320(F), and two ATR42-320(QC)s.
