Alaska’s Largest Regional Air Group Changes Its Name to Ravn Alaska
Anchorage, ALASKA – Era Alaska, the brand that represents the family of airlines that includes Era Aviation, Hageland Aviation Services and Frontier Flying Service, is rebranding as Ravn Alaska. The airlines under the Era Alaska umbrella will also undergo rebranding. The move is reflective of Ravn Alaska’s ongoing effort to meet its mission of unsurpassed safety, excellent customer service, reliable and on-time flights, and safe and efficient handling of baggage and cargo. The effort is intended to decrease confusion in the marketplace with the Era name and distinguish the airline from others in the aviation industry – a process nearly six months in the making.
Era Aviation will become Corvus Airlines, and Hageland Aviation and Frontier Flying Service will operate under the brand name Ravn Connect.
“We have worked hard to create an airline network that covers nearly the entire state of Alaska, and like the raven, we are statewide, strong in flight, and part of a united family that sticks together,” said Ravn Alaska CEO Bob Hajdukovich. “For more than 60 years, we have been a part of aviation in Alaska, and we look forward to this next chapter in our company’s history.”
Wherever you see Era Alaska today, you will see Ravn Alaska in the near future. The company will continue to operate in its current structure. There has been no change in ownership, staff or locations served. The rebranding of Era Alaska to Ravn Alaska will happen in phases and will take several months to fully complete. The website will transition from flyera.com to flyravn.com.
“We look forward to continued success as the largest regional air group in the state, and we are excited about the progress and changes we are making under the new brand,” said Steve Smith, director of sales and marketing for Ravn Alaska. “As always, we will continue to serve our customers with the same dedication and quality with which you have come to expect from us.”
Ravn Alaska is the largest regional air group 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.
