MONTREAL, March 11, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - DEVELOPPEMENTS APUTIK INC. and NOLINOR 
AVIATION are pleased to announce the launch of UPPIK AVIATION INC. An Inuit 
owned company, Uppik Aviation will provide air charter services in the Nunavik 
region. Nolinor Aviation using their expanding fleet of Boeing 737 and Convair 
580 aircraft will operate charter flights booked with Uppik Aviation. 
"We're very pleased to be able to offer air charter service to the expanding 
resource sector in the region," commented George Berthe, President of 
Developpements Aputik and the newly formed Uppik Aviation. "Nolinor is no 
stranger in the aviation industry, and our partnership will provide more 
options for passengers and cargo to move by air into and across the North" 
President of Nolinor Aviation, Jacques Prud'homme commented, " Nolinor is in 
the middle of our largest expansion in our 20 year history, and we are very 
excited to announce the formation of Uppik Aviation. We look forward to 
building even stronger relationships with the people and enterprises doing 
business throughout the North." 
Nolinor is in the process of adding to it's fleet of 737 jet aircraft, with 
delivery of it's fourth jet scheduled for later this month and more later this 
year. They recently acquired a certified bulk fuel hauling system for it's 737 
jets, allowing for the capability to deliver fuel products to remote sites. 
This gives Uppik Aviation the capability to carry people, cargo, and bulk fuel 
to remote sites with very little infrastructure on the ground, a perfect match 
for Mining and Exploration clients in the region.
