ANCHORAGE (AP) -- PenAir has begun three-time-weekly flights to Adak, returning scheduled air service to that Aleutian island community.
That came after Reeve Aleutian Airways ended regular flights last week because of financial problems.
Anchorage-based PenAir said it also has increased the number of its flights to other communities once served by Reeve. That includes three flights weekly to St. Paul and St. George in the Pribilofs and five flights per week to Sand Point and Cold Bay.
The Adak flights will originate from Dutch Harbor.
PenAir said the flights were being subsidized by the federal ''essential air service'' program.
