In other news, Crowley Fuels LLC and Ravn Air Group have announced that the two companies have executed a long-term contract to provide aviation fuel and services to Alaska’s largest regional airline, headquartered in Anchorage.
The new agreement expands on the existing Crowley/Ravn relationship, which began in 2010. In addition to providing aviation fuel to Ravn, under the terms of this new contract, Crowley will provide on-site, into-wing fueling services – supplying 100 LL AvGas and additized Jet A – to Ravn’s commercial aircraft in Bethel, Nome, Kotzebue, St. Mary’s, Galena and Aniak, streamlining the fueling process, and enhancing Ravn’s ability to serve its customers through optimized operations. Crowley Fuels is also providing heating oil and gasoline to these six Ravn locations with opportunities to expand services to other locations in the state.
Supported by over 1,000 employees, Ravn operates a highly reliable fleet of nearly 70 aircraft on more than 400 flights per day from hubs in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Bethel, Aniak, St. Mary’s, Nome, Kotzebue, Unalakleet, Barrow, and Galena. The airline provides passenger, mail, freight, and charter customers with air transportation and logistics services to more than 115 destinations throughout Alaska.
