Travel Information

Guests must arrive in Saskatoon the day prior to our charter flight departures. Delta / Westjet Airlines and Air Canada / United Airlines service Saskatoon from the U.S. via Toronto for guests travelling from the east and Vancouver or Calgary for guests travelling from the Midwest and west.

Minor Bay Lodge’s charter flights are scheduled to depart at 6:30 AM from the Transwest Air charter terminal located adjacent to the main Saskatoon airport on each turnaround day during our operating season.

A representative of Transwest Air will meet you just outside the customs area at the Saskatoon International Airport. To expedite an on-time departure, we request that our guests pack a small overnight bag to take with them to our preferred hotel, and leave the rest of their luggage with the Transwest expeditor so he / she may deliver the baggage to the charter terminal so it can be weighed and loaded on the aircraft well in advance of the departure time.

The lodge’s preferred hotel has an airport shuttle which can be called on the hotel phone bank, located near the domestic baggage carousels outside the customs area near the airport south exit doors.  As the hotel is downtown, the wait time for the shuttle will be approximately 10 – 15 minutes.

The hotel shuttle bus(s) will provide transportation between the hotel and the Transwest Air hangar in the morning.  Please be in the hotel lobby by 5:30 AM to take the shuttle to our morning charter, which departs by 6:30 AM.

Due to the logistics of providing transportation from the airport hotel to the charter terminal, guests that opt to stay at a hotel other than the recommended hotel are responsible for providing their own transportation between the airport and hotel upon their arrival in Saskatoon, and the hotel and charter terminal the morning of the charter flight to the lodge.

PLEASE CONTACT OUR OFFICE, TO BOOK YOUR HOTEL ROOMS AS THE HOTEL WILL NOT ACCEPT RESERVATIONS FROM INDIVIDUAL GUESTS.
