Canadian North gets futuristic with Fetchable

Fetchable is Canadian North' s new internet-based service.“We have available space on our aircraft and we’re looking for ways to fill it,” said Canadian North president Steve Hankirk.“One of the things we’ve talked about for quite some time is having a delivery model, both north and south, that’s robust and timely, and that we’re going to use latest technology in.”


The partnership with BBE Expediting promises to deliver product to the Nunavut communities on its flight plans from anywhere in the world. It also promises one-day service for perishables from the south. The service is available in Nunavut wherever Canadian North flies: Pond Inlet, Qikiqtarjuaq, Pangnirtung, Iqaluit, Cape Dorset, Hall Beach, Iglulik, Rankin Inlet, Kugaaruk, Taloyoak, Gjoa Haven, Kugluktuk and Cambridge Bay.


Fetchable was developed over the course of the last six months and launched in early February. “Any number of individuals and retailers can use Fetchable on-line. It’s very simple to use. Any individual or retailer can use it to ship cargo in a cost-effective manner to the North, or, quite frankly, if you’ve got goods to ship to the south, you can connect to a network and basically get it anywhere,” said Hankirk. Any perishables transported via Fetchable will be treated like luggage, meaning it will get to the community on the same day it’s shipped. The company is even looking to use special German boxes, Fetchable-branded, that will help keep perishables fresh and easily identifiable.

No evidence of anti-competitive acts between First Air and Canadian North:

Investigation began in 2016 amid predatory pricing allegations. The Competition Bureau has found no evidence of anti-competitive acts between First Air and Canadian North in its investigation of predatory pricing toward the now-defunct GoSarvaq. While the bureau found First Air and Canadian North's seat sales, which coincided with GoSarvaq's launch, had an impact on GoSarvaq, "the Bureau did not find sufficient evidence to conclude that these were anti-competitive acts as required by the [Competition] Act,"according to a statement from the bureau. The seat sales saw one-way tickets along theOttawa-Iqaluitroute gobelow $500 from the roughly regular$1,200 fare. The bureau looked at whether the bigger airlines dropped their prices so low that they would make less money than not flying at all. If they did, with the intent to recoup the lost revenues after GoSarvaq went out of business, it would be illegal. But the bureau didn't find any evidence to indicate the airlines broke any laws. Although the Bureau found evidence indicating the bigger airlines saw GoSarvaq as a threat, and that the airlines took deliberate actions in response to GoSarvaq's launch, it found no evidence that First Air and Canadian North were price-fixing with each other.


Canadian North says its pleased with the conclusions from the Bureau, along with how the bureau acknowledged the challenges of flying in the North. As for the alleged predatory pricing along the Ottawa-Iqaluit route, the airline says the route is important to its operations in Nunavut as a gateway to the Eastern Arctic. "Whether profitable or not, we'd never want to surrender market share on that route," said Canadian North's communications manager Kelly Lewis, adding it's also an important cargo route. "We've operated for two decades on that route, almost. We've worked hard to build a lot of market share. To not respond [to GoSarvaq's low introductory rate] would have been, basically, surrendering and put the sustainability of our business at risk and certainly put jobs at risk." Asked why customers haven't seen a similar seat sale since, Lewis said GoSarvaq's initial fare was an introductory offer. "You have to compete to a changing market conditions, and we were comfortable, for the short term, doing that," Lewis said. "Is that a price that we we would want to offer on an ongoing basis? I wouldn't think so, no. But nobody had stated that was going to be a permanent standing price for that route." The competition bureau also investigated First Air and Canadian North's codeshare agreement —which saw both airlines sell seats on each other's planes on certain routes — but closed the investigation after First Air ended the codeshare agreement in May.
