Northern Air Cargo Resumes Service to Saint Paul Island
Northern Air Cargo announced today that it will introduce jet service between Anchorage and the Pribilof Island community of St. Paul beginning Thursday, November 18th. This will not be a first for Northern Air Cargo (NAC). The company offered service to St. Paul for many years but discontinued service in 2002 due to market conditions.
“The Northern Air Cargo family is thrilled to be returning to St. Paul,” said David Karp, NAC’s President & CEO. “The community has been asking for a resumption of NAC service for years, and we’ve finally been able to find a model that works for both the company and the community.
The company’s Boeing 737-200 freighter is scheduled to touch down on St. Paul on Mondays and Thursdays and will allow the residents of St. Paul to transport larger items by air, thus providing more options for the community to shop in Anchorage and the rest of Alaska.
Northern Air Cargo, established in 1956, is currently a wholly owned subsidiary of Saltchuk Resource Corporation. The Northern Air Cargo family of companies offer scheduled and charter cargo services throughout Alaska, the Lower 48 and North America as well as aircraft maintenance and ground handling services.
