Alces: (Latin) “Moose"

Many people have asked us what the ‘Alces’ in Alces Flight means – it’s Latin for moose! The moose is our company founder’s favourite animal, and when the company launched the moose icon was created as tribute. We even give away little plush moose to lucky event attendees and customers. Check out where we’ll be next in our news and blog.
