Ravn Air Group fails to sell its two Part 121 airlines (RavnAir Alaska and PenAir)

Ravn Air Group made this announcement:

The auction on July 8, 2020 for Ravn Air Group’s two Anchorage-based Part 121 passenger air carriers (RavnAir Alaska and PenAir) was adjourned without a sale after Ravn’s secured creditors (the Lenders) and Unsecured Creditors Committee determined that bids received were not high enough to be acceptable.

As a result, the Company will only seek approval at tomorrow’s Bankruptcy Court hearing of the other 11 asset lots successfully sold at yesterday’s auction that was focused primarily on RavnAir Connect Part 135 aircraft and facilities used in rural Alaska operations.

“While it was disappointing that no one has yet emerged as a successful bidder of our two remaining airlines, the auction process will not be concluded until our Lenders decide to end the formal court- approved sales process, make the Plan of Liquidation effective, and place the remaining airlines and their respective assets into a liquidating trust.

Given those facts, we remain optimistic that a new owner will still be able to step in and restart one or more of our two Part 121 airlines,” said Dave Pflieger, Ravn’s President & CEO.
