While Ravn Air Group has said it plans to resume Unalaska's regular flights sometime next week, airline officials haven't released any further details since they made that announcement one week ago.

"I'm not real confident in their date line," said City Councilor Shari Coleman.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is investigating the cause of this month's plane crash in Unalaska, which killed one passenger and injured more than a dozen others. 

While the full inquiry is expected to take a year or more, the federal agency is planning to release a preliminary report within a few weeks.

KUCB's Laura Kraegel spoke with Clint Johnson, the chief of the NTSB's Alaska Regional Office.

Unalaska has declared a local emergency over the community's lack of commercial air service.

The City Council approved the 21-day declaration at a special meeting on Tuesday — almost two weeks after Ravn Air Group suspended the island's regular flights to and from Anchorage in the wake of a fatal plane crash.
