The Yukon Airways & Exploration Co. Ltd. was formed to operate in the Yukon territory. The company's main office was in White Horse and there were branches in Dawson and Mayo Landing. (source)

Year: 1927, Gummed. Günter Mair's catalogue no: - CAN-B-1, imperforated, size: 245x11.5mm,

  1. There are two types of labels from Yukon Airways. The other label has the slash between Mail and Care in the middle, the one shown is closer to the bottom. Also, the second label has a different "a" in the word "Care". These are the first airmail labels created in Canada, so very new item.

  2. Hi Steve,first welcome to my blog. And thanks for the update on that label,it's very useful information. Will be looking for that label as well!

  3. My friend here in Canada produced a book on Canadian Airmail labels and markings. If you are interested, you should go to the Canadian Aerophilatelic society webpage.

  4. Thanks Steve, i will take a look to it.
