Air Tindi is an airline based in Yellowknifemarker, Northwest Territoriesmarker, Canadamarker. It operates scheduled and on demand charter services. Its main base is Yellowknife Airportmarker and the airline was formerly owned by the Arychuk family. The name Tindi means "the big lake" or "Great Slave Lakemarker", in the local native Tli Cho language.


Air Tindi was established and began operations on 1 November 1988, with four float/ski aircraft. In 1990 it purchased its first De Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter with the help of the Rae-Edzo Development Corporation, allowing the airline to expand and provide more services to the growing mining exploration industry. In 1991 Air Tindi merged with Latham Island Airways and acquired a further four aircraft in the process. By mid 1992 Air Tindi was operating four Twin Otters on floats. In 1993 their first large aircraft, a DHC 4 Caribou for re-supply work with the mining industry, was purchased. A DHC Dash 7 was acquired in 1996.

On 19 December 2006, Air Tindi sold to Discovery Air Inc. (TSX at DA.A), a publicly traded holding company based in London, Ontariomarker. The original founders still maintain their same position and continue to work with Air Tindi.
