This will be the first commercial service to Bristol Bay in more than a month. RavnAir was formerly the only company with year-round operations to the region. It shut down all operations, laid off its staff and filed for bankruptcy April 5 due to a steep reduction in travel amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Alaska Air also announced that full freighter options will be available for both King Salmon and Dillingham in the coming weeks. The airline will also start flying in Cold Bay on May 16. Tickets went on sale Monday.
