The largest air carrier in southwest Alaska has filed for bankruptcy protection.
“PenAir filed for reorganization under Chapter 11," said CEO Danny Seybert on Monday. "There's a number of reasons for this. I won't go into all the reasons, but we're going to reorganize the company."
Seybert said the filing will not affect scheduled flights in Alaska, where the company serves eight communities: Unalaska, Cold Bay, King Salmon, Sand Point, Dillingham, St. Paul, St. George, and McGrath.
