Unalaska may declare a state of emergency following a fatal plane crash on the island this month.

City officials took up the idea after Ravn Air Group announced that it would not resume regular flights until early November — and that even afterwards, it would fly smaller, slower planes indefinitely.

The Unalaska City Council has called a special meeting Friday "regarding commercial flights servicing Unalaska."

Following last week's fatal plane crash that killed one passenger and injured more than a dozen others, Ravn airline officials announced Thursday that regular flights won't resume until the week of Nov. 4.

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.
