Austin Airways was Canada’s oldest airline and started service in 1934. The home base was Timmins and it operated many duties in addition to passenger and freight services. Over the years, scheduled services served over 40 cities in Ontario, Quebec, the Northwest Territories, and one destination in the United States. In 1973 it merged with White River Air Services but continued to operate as Austin Airways.
