Puvirnituq Airport serves the northern village of Puvirnituq in Nunavik. The village is in close proximity to the Povungnituk River near the mouth on the Hudson Bay in northern Quebec, Canada. Unlike most northern villages in Nunavik, Puvirnituq has no Intuit reserved land. Puvirnituq Airport acts as the aviation hub of the Hudson Bay coast, and handles scheduled flights to and from all other Hudson Bay coastal communities in Quebec, Montreal, and Ottawa. Even if Puvirnituq is landlocked, surprisingly, it is not accessible by road since there are no road links between Nunavik and southern Quebec. Some interior parts of Nunavik can be reached using several trails that heads north from Schefferville.
Puvirnituq Airport is mainly being served by its major air carrier Air Intuit, which flies to other regional destinations Akulivik, Inukjuak, Kuujjuaq, Montreal-Trudeau, Radisson, and Salluit. It is located approximately 2km north of Puvirnituq. However, taking into consideration the aforementioned conditions of the village, you cannot expect Puvirnituq Airport to house state-of-the-art facilities similar to those airports majorly served by airlines of the world.
If you want to fly out of Puvirnituq and see other destinations, you can opt to fly in La Grande Airport in Quebec, and from there, book for a connecting flight going to Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport. Montreal is deemed as Canada’s second largest city. Given this, Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport serves 12 million passengers each year and has 32 air carriers with more than 130 direct flights to destinations in Canada, United States, and as far as Europe.
