Airlines offering flights in and out of Dutch Harbor
At least two airlines are offering flights in and out of Dutch Harbor in an effort to help the Unalaska community since flights were suspended after a crash that killed one passenger last week.
Grant Aviation announced Thursday they'd be offering commercial flights from Dutch Harbor to Cold Bay. The one-way flights cost $225 and as of Thursday afternoon, at least four flights were scheduled through next week.
The flights are scheduled so passengers can make it to Cold Bay in time for connections to Anchorage. Those connecting flights are operated by PenAir but marketed and sold by Ravn Air Group. Tickets are available for purchase online.
On Friday, Security Aviation announced they'd be teaming up with Alaska Travel Source to offer three flights a week to Dutch Harbor. The airline did not specify how much tickets would cost, but said seats can be reserved online or by calling 907-522-1299.
Ravn said it will open service to Dutch Harbor sometime during the first week of November. In the meantime, charter flights are available through their website.
