Air Inuit
Bombardier Dash-8 Combi 300 Series


The Air Inuit-designed Dash-8-300 "Combi" expands the aircraft's ability beyond the scope of its original "commuter" mission. By reducing the cabin seating capacity to 45, and expanding the aft cargo hold to accommodate 4,000 pounds in a self-contained C class cargo compartment, a functional balance between passenger and cargo/baggage load for heavy industrial as well as commuter missions is achieved.

The Dash-8-300 aircraft industry standard is further complemented by Air Inuit's fleet specifications that include: a unique cabin configuration allowing for an increased baggage and cargo volume storage capacity, the capability of a hot meal service, leather seating and cold weather adapted passenger cabin enhancements. This aircraft type operates comfortably on a 3,500-foot paved or gravel runway.
