Era Alaska Honored for Supporting Tourism in Kenai Peninsula
KENAI – On August 25, 2012, the Kenai Peninsula Tourism Marketing Council presented Era Alaska with the Outstanding Support Business in Tourism award as part of the Kenai Peninsula’s Industry Appreciation Day.
Steve Smith, Era Alaska’s director of sales and marketing, was on hand Saturday to receive the award. He stated: “Era Alaska is honored to receive this award. We understand how critical the tourism industry is to the Kenai Peninsula and are proud to support the industry and the Peninsula communities.”
Era Alaska has offered service on the Kenai Peninsula for over 30 years. The airline is particularly busy during fishing season, flying upward of 10,000 passengers a month to and from the Kenai.
The Peninsula’s Industry Appreciation Day was established more than 20 years ago to recognize the industries that make the Kenai Peninsula a great place to live and work. Each year, outstanding individuals and businesses in the oil, gas, fishing and tourism industries are honored for their dedication to excellence and community.
Era Alaska is the largest regional airline based in the state, offering daily passenger and cargo services to nearly 100 communities across Alaska. All flights operated on Bombardier Dash 8 aircraft feature full in-flight cabin service.
