Canada turns 150 years old this year, and what could be a better way to celebrate this great country than by seeing and experiencing more of it? At Airco Aircraft Charters Ltd. we provide group charter flights from Calgary and Edmonton that can take you anywhere you, your friends, and your family want to go. With free admission to Canada's national parks for all of 2017, now is the time to hop on direct charter flight from Edmonton and Calgary to places in Canada that you've never been.

British Columbia

One of the most popular destinations for charter flights out of Calgary and Edmonton is, of course, British Columbia. You can visit Kelowna this summer to taste the wines of the Okanagan Valley or to relax on Lake Okanagan. You can also spend some time learning to surf on the waters of the Pacific Ocean at Tofino. If you want to celebrate Canada by learning more about its history, head to some of the towns and cities that were once at the center of the gold rush, such as Quesnel.


There is so much to see in Alberta outside of Calgary and Edmonton. Hop on a flight to visit the northern community of Fort Smith and take in the incredible Aurora Borealis, or stay in Fort Chipewyan and visit nearby Wood Buffalo National Park. The rugged Canadian Badlands around Drumheller, the gleaming turquoise lakes of the Rockies, and the rolling prairies in the south of the Province all lie in your own backyard and beg to be explored.


If you've already seen much of the west coast, then use this year to explore more of our prairies. Book a stay in Saskatoon and check out the Wanuskewin Heritage Park while you're there, or stop by the RCMP Museum if you're going to be flying into Regina. There are numerous other historic sites located throughout the province, such as the Discovery Centre in Eastend.


Fishing enthusiasts will find endless waterways to explore and make record-breaking catches on in Manitoba. Fly in to the beautiful cottage country along the shores of Lake Winnipeg, or stay in Winnipeg during one of its numerous cultural events, such as the Festival Du Voyageur or the Winnipeg Folk Festival. If you catch a direct flight out to one of the small communities on the shores of Hudson's Bay and you may even have a chance to see polar bears!

The Territories

Group charter flights can also take you to the beautiful Territories. Visit Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories or Whitehorse in the Yukon in the summer time and enjoy the long, seemingly endless days of sunshine. Dawson City in the Yukon is also a worthwhile destination, especially during the Dawson City Music Festival.
