Best North American Airlines.


Some of the most refreshing airlines in the world operate from North America.

No matter whether these airlines originate out of Canada or the USA – here are some of the best North American airlines:

#1 Air Canada

Founded in 1937, this Star Alliance member and flag carrier for Canada is among the twenty largest airlines in the world and indeed, the country’s largest airline too. As such, it’s really no surprise that they are considered one of the top North American airlines.

And, although it has more than 200 airports across six continents, Air Canada remains one of the youngest, most fuel efficient and environmentally friendly airlines around.

For the past 85 years or so, Alaska Airlines have been guided by a strong sense of professionalism, community and passion, all of which have helped to ensure that they have remained a consistent favourite – especially among those travelling about North America.

They fly to over 115 destinations, and are certainly one of your best options for getting where you want – and need – to be.
