Amazon Extends Service In Iqaluit

Prime customers in one of Canada's most northern communities, Iqaluit, NU, will receive faster delivery times thanks to expanded service from Amazon. Customers can now receive their items in three to five days, compared to the former 15 to 20 days, just in time for the holiday season. This service, in partnership with Inuit-owned airline Canadian North, will be in addition to the existing way customers receive their orders in the region today. “We are grateful that Amazon is using its global scale for good to make a historic, positive change in our city,” says Kenneth Bell, mayor of Iqaluit. “We could not be more excited to see just how big of an impact Amazon's new expedited shipping services will have on the Iqaluit community, which will support residents, the local economy, and small businesses shipping their products to, from, and within our city.”
