Traveller Information

COVID procedures Jan 14


To ensure on-time departures, your cooperation is required for the following:

Passengers are required to check-in 1 hour before the flight departs. This is also to allow for Transport Canada required manifesting and freight loading. If you are not checked in 1 hour prior to departure, your boarding may be denied. A confirmed passenger that does not check-in or shows up will forfeit that portion of their ticket and it will be voided. Tickets that are purchased for flights that depart within 24 hours are non-refundable and cannot be changed.

If you happen to miss your flight, it will be your responsibility to rebook your flight for the following day or whenever you decide to travel. North-Wright Airways will only transfer passengers to the next available flight for weather or mechanical delays.

Passengers Tickets

If the child is 12 years old and older, they must pay for the adult’s fare and can travel without an escort.

Seating Arrangement for Children

North-Wright Airways, to the best of our abilities, will assign seating arrangements for children, 14 years old and under, upon check-in. If seats are not assigned prior to check-in, upon calling passengers to the gate for boarding; North-Wright will allow children with escorts to be first in line to claim seats so that they are located in the seating nearest to the parent or guardian.
