HistoryEdit

 
Old logo

The airline was established in June 1982 and started operations on 1 July 1982. At that time the Cree owned 51% of the company and Austin Airways owned the remaining 49%. In 1988 the Cree purchased all the airline assets in the largest commercial deal to that date performed by any aboriginal group in Canada, making Air Creebec owned entirely by the Cree.[7]

On 23 March 2012, Air Creebec discontinued its service to La Grande Rivière Airport.[8]
