Grant Aviation has announced plans to open a base in King Salmon on October 1 st 2012. Grant has planned an expansion in this region of Alaska for some time now, and the recent announcement by Pen Air has provided the perfect opening to move forward with longstanding plans. Schedules for flights to the surrounding villages will be published on August 8 th 2012 on Grant Aviation’s website, www.flygrant.com. Grant will begin taking reservations on the same day and they can be made by calling 1-888-FLY-GRANT (1-888-359-4726) or by emailing email@example.com.
In the interim, next week, on Wednesday August 8, 2012, Grant Aviation will begin twice daily commuter service between the communities of Dillingham and King Salmon. To aid the people in this region with this transition, Grant Aviation will gladly accept all tickets that had been previously issued by Pen Air.
Grant Aviation plans to work closely with Pen Air during this transition to provide a seamless transfer in service and to ensure that our schedules coincide ensuring easy connections for travel between the bush communities and Anchorage. Grant Aviation is excited about this opportunity to meet new friends and to continue providing exceptional service to the people of Bush Alaska.
As an Alaskan-owned and operated commuter airline, Grant Aviation has been transporting passengers, US Mail, freight, and cargo, all over Alaska since 1971. Today, with 29 aircraft, seven bases, and in excess of 200 employees Grant serves more than 50 communities across the state.
