PenAir ends service to Bethel

Posted: Thursday, March 29, 2001

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- PenAir has canceled its Bush service out of Bethel.

Service to the 17 largest communities in the Yukon-Kuskowkim Delta region around Bethel was only marginally profitable, PenAir President Orin Seybert said

The company needed the planes and staff for its increased business in the Alaska Peninsula and the Aleutian Islands, he said.

PenAir's passenger service in the region has more than doubled since Reeve Aleutian Airways suspended all scheduled services in December, Seybert said. And for the first time, PenAir is flying to Adak.

PenAir serves 80 communities around Alaska with 35 airplanes.
