Aleutian Airways previously announced it would commence operations in the fall of 2021. This has now been delayed until at least March 2022 due to safety considerations.
Aleutian Airways is a new air service, using former PenAir SAAB 2000 aircraft, and is a joint venture between long time airline investor Wexford Capital, Juneau-based Alaska Seaplanes, and McKinley Alaska Private Investment, LLC.
Aleutian will now begin flying nonstop between Anchorage and Unalaska/Dutch Harbor (below) in Spring 2022.
