Norman Wells has daily jet connections to Edmonton, Yellowknife, and Inuvik via Canadian North Airlines and First Air. Once here, you travel by air – there are no all weather roads linking our communities. Our regional carrier is North-Wright Airways, based in Norman Wells, with routes linking our five communities to Yellowknife and Inuvik.
Together with Ursus Aviation, Sahtu Helicopter and Canadian Helicopter, North-Wright Airways offers a wide range of aircraft for a variety of purposes, from specialized mountain sightseeing to scheduled runs to regional communities.
From January to March, a winter road connects Norman Wells with Wrigley, the most northerly point on Mackenzie Highway 1.
