Anchorage, Alaska – Ravn Air Group (“Ravn”), Alaska’s largest regional airline, today announced it is expanding its network to provide nonstop service to Dillingham and King Salmon beginning on Valentine’s Day, Feb.14, 2018. Tickets are on sale now at www.flyravn.com.
“The Ravn team is excited to expand our network to serve these two great communities,” said Ravn’s President and CEO Dave Pflieger. "We’ve heard the call from residents of Dillingham and King Salmon for more choice and more competition in air service, and Ravn is looking forward to answering that call with more flight options, lower fares, and more reliable service.”
To celebrate, Ravn is offering a special introductory rate of $149 one way.* Tickets can be purchased between now and Dec. 20, 2017 for travel between Feb. 14, 2018 and May 9, 2018. After that, everyday low fares from Anchorage to Dillingham will start from $199 one way and to King Salmon from $169 one way.**
“We’re working hard to be Alaska’s first choice in local air service, and everyone is invited to log on to flyravn.com to check out our convenient flight schedules, compare our fares, and sign up for our FlyAway Rewards frequent flyer program, which not only allows customers to build points for free flights, it also gives members advance notice on future fare sales,” said Pflieger.
“We couldn’t think of a better way to mark the expansion of our network than sending a message that ‘Ravn Loves Dillingham and King Salmon’ and launching inaugural flights on Valentine’s Day,” said Ravn’s Chief Financial Officer Steve Jackson. Jackson formerly served as CEO of Era Alaska, now a part of Ravn, where he first considered expanding service to these two communities. “Having long considered flights to Dillingham and King Salmon, it’s great to be able to move forward with plans to support these great communities and say ‘thank you’ to the customers we look forward to serving,” Jackson said.
Ravn currently serves the passenger, charter, and cargo needs of more than 100 communities throughout Alaska. Expansion to Dillingham and King Salmon will further enhance Ravn’s efforts to offer customers unparalleled service and flight connections across the state.
Flight Details & Schedule***
Beginning Feb. 14, 2018, Ravn will operate two roundtrip flights from Anchorage to Dillingham and King Salmon on weekdays and one roundtrip on each Saturday and Sunday. All flights will be operated aboard Ravn’s highly reliable fleet of Bombardier Dash-8 (de Havilland DHC-8) aircraft configured for 29 passengers. This flight configuration was chosen because it allows additional capacity for freight and mail, as well as two bags per passenger.
