Ravn Alaska (formerly Era Alaska) is an airline brand headquartered in Anchorage, Alaska, United States. It operates a network of services from Anchorage as part of an Alaska Airlines Partnership. Its primary hub is Anchorage Airport.[5]

History[edit]

An Era Alaska Dash 8

Era Alaska was formed when three airlines, Frontier Flying Service, Era Aviation, and Hageland Aviation began operating under the same brand name. The three airlines now serve as the largest air carrier in the state of Alaska by connecting more cities and passengers, utilizing the largest airplane fleet in Alaska. The airline group also acquired Arctic Circle Air Service, a local cargo airline, in 2010.

The airline's history in providing safe air service has earned it the Medallion Shield by the Medallion Foundation.[6]

In 2014, the partnership was re-branded as Ravn Alaska, with the brand Ravn Alaska operated by Era Aviation and the brand Ravn Connect operated by Hageland Aviation (scheduled passenger flights) and Frontier Flying Service (cargo and on-demand charters).[7]

Media[edit]

Era Alaska was featured on Discovery Channel's series, Flying Wild Alaska.[4]
