WHITEHORSE, YUKON - April 1, 2014 - Air North, Yukon's Airline today announced that it is rebranding, and will operate as Epic Airlines. The change is effective immediately.
The airline has long been known for its authentic Yukon hospitality, but the incredible spirit of innovative customer service demonstrated by the airline's staff needed to be underscored by the carrier's name.
"'Air North' didn't capture our complete essence of awesome," Epic Airlines' President, Joe Sparling said. "The company was fantastic when it was founded 37 years ago. But now, it's something else entirely – and it's time for people to know just how epic we truly are."
Alongside the rebranding, the airline is introducing Super Northern Achievement Points (SNAP). Passengers will earn points for tasks such as successfully bucking and unbuckling their seat belts, raising their tray tables and seat-backs prior to landing, and waving at other airlines as we pass by.
SNAP will be used to unlock special bonuses, such as complimentary aviator sunglasses at time of check-in – and one billion SNAP will earn the passenger a piggyback ride from President Joe Sparling, from check-in to the aircraft.
"I can't wait for our passengers to see what we have in store for them," Sparling said. "The time for Epic is now."
