ALASKA AIRLINES

RavnAir Group

Ravn Alaska is offering a points program that customers can use to redeem for the value towards the cost of airline tickets, snacks or baggage fees.

 

Ravn CEO Rob McKinney said the program is a way to appreciate the flying public.

 

"I would like to just re-express my gratitude to everyone that has given us their faith and trust and come back — and as good loyal customers," McKinney said. "We're really, really grateful and thankful for everyone that flies [with] us every single day." 

City of Cold Bay

Scheduled air service to Cold Bay is being cancelled through Dec. 1. That's expected to also disrupt service to Unalaska, where the only commercial flight option requires a connection in the Alaska Peninsula village.

This is the first closure of this kind during the pandemic at any State of Alaska airport, according to Sam Dapcevich, a public information officer with the Alaska Department of Transportation.

A rebooted version of Ravn airlines will resume scheduled flights to Unalaska and several other Alaska communities in less than a week. Ravn Alaska CEO Rob McKinney says federal authorities granted approvals last Friday.

In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, life has been even more unpredictable than it normally is on a remote Aleutian island. Daily routines from going to school to trips to the grocery store have been disrupted, and here at KUCB, we understand how challenging that has been. We are honored that the community has stood by us during these unprecedented times as we worked to bring you novel and unique forms of entertainment and news.

Two airlines are vying to resume direct flights connecting Unalaska with Anchorage. Servant Air and Float Alaska have each made filings stating they would like to fill the gap left by Ravn which filed for bankruptcy earlier this year.
