Flight Times:

Flying from Toronto to Pond Inlet with Canadian North.

The flight path up to the Arctic was supposed to be Toronto – Ottawa – Iqaluit – Igloolik – Pond Inlet.  The weather in the Arctic is very unpredictable however, so as we approached Igloolik we were told that they had to cancel the landing and go straight to Pond Inlet since there was zero visibility due to fog. I had expected to be flying on small twin-prop planes but was pleasantly surprised when I saw that we had fairly proper planes taking us up to the Arctic. The reason they used the large planes is that the flights between the Arctic communities also carry supplies up to the communities. So, half the plane was dedicated to passengers and the other half for additional cargo.
