The Tahltan Nation Development Corporation is one step closer to providing all aspects of airport service at the Dease Lake Airport.

TNDC announced today that they will be taking over fuel operations at the airport, serving up to 25 aircrafts weekly.

Those operations include supporting medical evacuations, Red Chris crew changes, and firefighting.

Which adds to a list of responsibilities already taken on, like grounds maintenance, de-icing aircrafts, and passenger and ground handling.

Already creating eight jobs for Tahltan members, TNDC airport services continue to work with the Executive Flight Centre in training for other disciplines of airport operations.
