Quebecair was serving the airport with BAC One-Eleven jets in 1972 with a round trip routing of Churchill Falls - Wabush - Sept-Iles - Quebec City - Montreal operated twice a week.[6] Quebecair also served Churchill Falls with Fairchild F-27 turboprop aircraft during the late 1960s and early 1970s.[7]
