Bearskin Airlines (JV, Sioux Lookout) has announced it has partnered Perimeter Aviation (PAG, Winnipeg Int'l) to re-establish service to several First Nations communities in northwestern Ontario.

In a statement, the carrier said it would shortly begin codesharing with Perimeter Aviation on its scheduled flights from Thunder Bay to Deer Lake, ON, Sachigo Lake, Round Lake, North Spirit Lake, Sandy Lake, and Pikangikum.

"We take pride in the fact that our company was born in the north and continues to serve the north, providing air service to many smaller communities that are important to our business customers who choose to live and work in northern Ontario," Ron Hell, the director of marketing and sales for Bearskin Airlines, said.

Perimeter Aviation already serves several of the destinations albeit from its Winnipeg Int'l hub.
