Following last week's fatal plane crash, Unalaska will have to wait at least 10 more days for regular flights to and from Anchorage.

With PenAir and Ravn's regular air service to Unalaska suspended until next month, other carriers are offering temporary flight alternatives.  

Grant Aviation has announced a route between the island and Cold Bay.

Unalaska's regular flight service to and from Anchorage will resume during the week of Nov. 4 — with Ravn's Dash 8 aircraft, not the PenAir Saab 2000 that's been flying the route since 2016.

Ravn made that announcement in a statement Thursday morning, about a week after a Saab 2000 crashed in Unalaska, killing one passenger and injuring more than a dozen others.

Unalaska's regular flight service has been stalled for about seven days.

The suspension was announced by Alaska Airlines, PenAir, and Ravn Air Group in the wake of last week's fatal plane crash. While some travelers are scoring seats on charter flights, the wider island community is growing anxious for regular service to resume.
