History

In 1990 it purchased its first De Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter with the help of the Rae-Edzo Development Corporation, allowing the airline to expand and provide more services to the growing mining exploration industry. In 1991 Air Tindi merged with Latham Island Airways and acquired a further four aircraft in the process. By mid 1992 Air Tindi was operating four Twin Otters on floats. In 1993 their first large aircraft, a DHC 4 Caribou for re-supply work with the mining industry, was purchased. A DHC Dash 7 was acquired in 1996. On December 19, 2006, Air Tindi Ltd. was acquired by Discovery Air Inc. (TSX: DA.A), a publicly traded holding company based in London, Ontario, Canada. Fact|date=April 2007
