Minnesota charter service partners with resort owners to bring tourism back to Northwest Angle
One company is hoping to make traveling to the Northwest Angle easier for cabin owners and resort goers.
NORTHWEST ANGLE, Minn. — One company is hoping to make traveling to the Northwest Angle easier for cabin owners and resort goers.
The Northwest Angle is only accessible by land through Canada, and only permanent residents can take that route because of pandemic border restrictions.
That leaves resorts, restaurants and cabin owners with two options: a long boat ride or a plane ride.
Lake Country Air, a local airline service, said their new service from Baudette or Warroad to the Northwest Angle is in high demand.
The company isn't only helping tourism and summer housing owners.
"You know, there is and importance to us being able to help on emergency situations, as well. Because right now, if you have an emergency, the only option really is to get boated across the lake or wait for a med-evac," said Jesse Starkson, owner and manager of Lake Country Air.
The company hopes to get their spring service running in just a couple weeks.
