Cold Bay is now bookable starting 16 May. And Adak goes to one stop service from ANC. Twice weekly, Weds and Sat.

Anchorage Daily News write-up from Scott McMurren on the new CDB service: https://www.adn.com/alaska-life/trav...t-destination/

In addition, Alaska Seaplanes is looking to buy Penair's operating certificate and resume some of Penair's old routes. https://www.alaskapublic.org/2020/05...disappearance/.

Bump for now, as AS is now retaining AKN and DLG as year-round service will commence with the E-175.

I would love to fly to ADK someday although I would probably not stay overnight since the flight only operates twice a week.

Really bummed to see CDB go away. It makes some sense since Ravn got back into DUT (remember CDB was started to support connections to DUT when the last iteration of Ravn flopped), but AS seemed to do decent on loads, especially since they could name their own price. Oh well.

It was quite a long day doing the turn from ANC to ADK via CDB in both directions but Im glad to add those routes to my map.

Did they let you deplane in ADK or did you have to stay on the plane?

Everyone has to deplane in ADK but they didnt allow anyone to deplane in CDB in both directions. I was fortunate enough to have a hour to explore the Island since the flight was delayed a little bit. Its an interesting place and my second time there. I got to see an erupting Sitkin! These volcanoes are amazing in the Aleutians.

Did the volcano delay your departure?

I think it was the TSA that needed additional time to screen the flight. I wasnt sure why it was delayed since I wasnt inside the terminal for a good amount of the turn time.
