Ravn Alaska cuts 130 employees

This is a bad sign for the airline, which already ended their marquee route of ANC-ENA last year. Wondering how long they have until bankruptcy (again)!

Still waiting for ETOPS certification or the Russia Ukraine war to end, whichever happens first.

They're hemorrhaging cash and at this rate they might not be solvent by this summer which will leave a lot of their intra-Alaska flying at risk for other operators to step in with EAS funding.

I don't think any of their routes are eligible for EAS.

I invite you to review the following on the DOT's website. According to the DOT RAVN flies to all of the EAS funded cities in the state of Alaska. It is sad to note that they only serve 8 cities currently unlike the good old pre-Covid days.

There's also this interesting tidbit from New Pacific Airlines proposing EAS service.
