Anchorage, Alaska (KINY) - Approval for the sale of all 12 lots of Ravn Air Group assets was granted today at the final U.S. Bankruptcy Court hearing.
The approval included, in a last-minute turn of events, Ravn Air Group’s two Anchorage-based Part 121 passenger air carriers, RavnAir Alaska and PenAir, which were sold as a “going concern” along with many of the assets of these two companies.
The successful bidder of RavnAir Alaska and PenAir was FLOAT Shuttle, a Los Angeles–based air commuter service.
“We are extremely excited about today’s outcome. While it is truly unfortunate that we can’t restart our RavnAir Connect Part 135 airline, we are hopeful that the Alaska-based buyers of those assets will hire many of our former employees; and we are thrilled to hear that the FLOAT shuttle team intends to rehire as many of our remaining employees as possible and quickly resume flights to the many vital communities Ravn serves throughout our great state,” said Dave Pflieger, Ravn’s President & CEO.
