FAA Approves Ravn Alaska’s Safety Management System

Today, Ravn Air Group, Alaska’s largest regional airline, is proud to announce its Safety Management System, or SMS, has been approved by the FAA.

“Ravn’s safety culture starts with our people,” said Pflieger. “Our team members know that the safety of our passengers and our team members is our top priority and that we expect everyone to play an active role in ensuring we operate at the highest level of safety possible.

He began his career at British Airways and his most recent airline role was Chief Commercial Officer of Air Mauritius, the national airline of Mauritius, which he and others took from a loss-making carrier to profitability by implementing a new commercial strategy that grew the airline and its revenue, added successful new routes and introduced new customer products.

I greatly look forward to joining Dave and the amazing team at Ravn and contributing to the airline’s inevitable success.”

In September, Ravn announced a new world-class senior management team. “With the addition of Derek, Ravn’s new, highly-experienced leadership team is almost complete. We’re thrilled to have such a seasoned team of top-notch professionals help us soar and better serve Alaska,” said Pflieger.
