“NEW” PENAIR OFFICIALLY JOINS RAVN AIR GROUP

Purchase of PenAir Assets by Investment Affiliates of J.F. Lehman & Company Complete

ANCHORAGE (Dec. 21, 2018) – Ravn Air Group (“Ravn”), Alaska’s largest regional airline, today announced that it has purchased the assets of Peninsula Airways, Inc. and created a “new” PenAir that is officially a member of Ravn Air Group. Earlier this month, the acquisition of PenAir’s assets by investment affiliates of J.F. Lehman & Company was approved by the U.S. Department of Transportation (“DOT”). Today, the remaining requirements needed to accomplish the sale were finalized, making the transfer of PenAir’s assets into a new subsidiary of Ravn Air Group complete.

As part of Ravn Air Group, the “new” PenAir will ensure that the airline can continue to provide safe and reliable service while simultaneously creating better and more extensive travel opportunities for its customers.

“This is a big win for Ravn Air Group, as well as for PenAir and all of our team members, customers, and Alaska communities,” said Dave Pflieger, President and CEO of Ravn Air Group. “The two companies coming together provides an incredible opportunity to better connect Alaska, with the ability to provide broader, more reliable, and more consistent service.”

As a subsidiary of Ravn Air Group, PenAir will keep its current name and continue to operate as a separate company under a separate FAA certificate. With the completion of the transaction, PenAir will be a financially sound organization with a significantly enhanced ability to serve the state of Alaska.

“For Ravn team members, this acquisition marks the culmination of over a year of hard work and effort that has resulted in a stronger, better company that is ready to expand,” added Pflieger. “Likewise, we recognize and value PenAir’s strong team, assets, and rich history of serving Alaska and are eager to welcome PenAir employees to the Ravn Air Group. We look forward to working together toward a shared goal of providing the best in safe travel throughout the great state of Alaska.”

“Joining forces with the Ravn Air Group will enable us to reach our full potential. Together, we will offer our customers a broader network, greater resources, and more travel opportunities – all while maintaining our renowned customer service that PenAir passengers have appreciated for more than sixty years. We couldn’t be more pleased to become part of the Ravn family,” said Brian Whilden, PenAir’s new President & COO.

Court Approves J.F Lehman & Company to Purchase Penair Assets

5th October, 2018 / Posted in Ravn News

Court Approves J.F Lehman & Company to Purchase Penair Assets

ANCHORAGE (Oct. 5, 2018) – J.F. Lehman & Company’s successful bid for PenAir’s assets was today approved by the court overseeing PenAir’s bankruptcy proceedings.  As the owner of Ravn Air Group, J.F. Lehman & Co.’s acquisition of PenAir will protect a substantial majority of company jobs, ensure continuity of operations and service to all PenAir routes, and create stability and better travel opportunities throughout the state.

“We are thrilled with this outcome,” said Dave Pflieger, President and CEO of Ravn Air Group. “It is a win for all parties—our Alaska customers and communities, as well as PenAir and Ravn employees alike.”

PenAir will keep its current name and continue to operate as a separate company under a separate FAA certificate as a subsidiary of Ravn Air Group, which will now have a significantly enhanced ability to serve the state of Alaska.

“Both my father, founder of PenAir Orin Seybert, and I are pleased with the decision of the court today,” said Danny Seybert, PenAir CEO. “This is a win-win for our employee group, AND our friends and customers throughout rural Alaska.”

Earlier this week, J.F. Lehman & Co.’s bid was selected as part of a court-mandated auction of PenAir’s assets conducted by a court appointed Trustee.  However, that selection required today’s formal approval from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Anchorage.  Before becoming final, this purchase must also be approved by the U.S. Department of Transportation and Federal Aviation Administration.

“It is a testament to the strength and fortitude of PenAir employees and the hard work and commitment of all Ravn Air Group team members that JFL was able to pursue the acquisition of such a storied airline, which, like Ravn, has a rich history of serving Alaska,” Pflieger said. “We are all very excited about our collective future and working together toward a shared goal of providing the very best in safety, operational excellence, customer service, and employee pride throughout Alaska.”
