RavnAir Group to begin service to Unalaska on November 14th
RavnAir Group will begin operating scheduled flights between Anchorage and Unalaska (Dutch Harbor) on Thursday, November 14, using RavnAir Alaska’s DeHavilland DH-C-100 (“Dash 8”) 29 and 37 seat aircraft. Flights are currently scheduled seven days a week and tickets can be purchased at flyravn.com or through the call center at 1-800-866-8394.
“New scheduled service to the community of Unalaska will begin on November 14th, and we plan to have flights back to the same frequency as before about a week later,” said Dave Pflieger, RavnAir Group President & CEO. “I want to thank everyone impacted by our cessation of Saab 2000 flying for your patience, understanding, and assistance over the past three weeks while we did everything necessary inside Ravn and with the FAA to start new Dash 8 air service to Dutch Harbor.”
“I also want to express our great appreciation to City officials, Alaska Airlines, our business partners, and the residents of Unalaska. This has been a difficult and challenging time and our thoughts and prayers are with all of the passengers and families whose lives have been affected by the Oct 17th tragedy.”
New daily Dash 8 service will continue through December 24. We will provide more news on plans to restore πregularly scheduled Saab 2000 service, and a schedule from December 25th onwards once that information becomes available in the weeks ahead.
