Ravn Alaska makes small operations change

In the wake of the major earthquake that struck in Anchorage on the morning of Friday, Nov. 30, Ravn Alaska, part of Ravn Air Group, announced it will operate a slightly reduced schedule this weekend.

Ravn Connection, Ravn’s other subsidiary, returned to normal operations after the quake.

“We are thankful that all of our employees and their families are safe and unharmed,” said Dave Pflieger, Ravn president and chief executive officer. “In spite of the damage sustained in the Anchorage area, which has impacted the local community, we are fortunate to report that we are continuing to fly and will resume normal operations very shortly.”

Ravn announced in September that the company would suspend scheduled dash 8 service between Cordova and Anchorage on Oct. 1, with plans to resume seasonal service no later than May 1. The company offered no specific reason for the decision.

Ravn currently offers some 3,000 flights a week, from hubs in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Bethel, Aniak, St. Mary’s, Nome, Kotzebue Unalaskleet, Barrow and Galea. Earlier this year Ravn expanded service to Dillingham, King Salmo and McGrath.

Ravn Air Group provides passenger, mail, freight and charter customers with air transportation and logistics services to over 115 destinations throughout Alaska.
