Air Labrador is one of the oldest successfully operating airlines in the World. Established in 1948, as Newfoundland Airways, the airline operated float-equipped aircraft from their base in Gander, Newfoundland. Primarily engaged in charter work, they also flew mail and freight to Northern Newfoundland and Labrador.


In 1983, Provincial Investments Inc., owned by Mr. Roger Pike, purchased the airline and its associate Company, Labrador Aviation Services Ltd. In 1985 a new hangar was constructed at Goose Bay, Labrador. Today, this fully accredited Transport Canada Maintenance Facility is the largest fully approved aircraft maintenance facility in Labrador and one of only three in the Province.

At this modern facility Air Labrador employs trained and experienced aircraft engineers, avionics technicians, mechanics and supervisory personnel. This team services the fleet, plus several other commercial air carriers in Labrador. The company employs over 100 people and is one of Goose Bay's largest civilian employers.
