April 2, 2020 (Anchorage) – Governor Mike Dunleavy issued this statement following today’s announcement that intrastate air carrier RavnAir will reduce air service.
“We want rural Alaskans to know the aviation industry is working cooperatively to ensure essential passenger service, bypass mail and freight service is maintained to their communities during these uncertain times,” said Governor Dunleavy. “This morning I also spoke with officials from the United States Postal Service and they assured me they are working with contract carriers to maintain scheduled service to rural areas. The importance of the supply chain to rural Alaska communities is a priority for my administration.”
