Flyers from Adak can now relax and continue booking cheap domestic flights on Alaska Airlines for their trips being currently offered by the airline.
Alaska Airlines, which was earlier in confusion whether to persist offering its services to Adak, has now decided that it will continue serving the inhabitants of Adak, on a trial basis.
Driving away the concerns over the continuation of services, Alaska Airlines is the only airline to respond to a recent request made by the federal Department of Transportation for bids on the Adak community’s Essential Air Service contract.
Positively responding to DOT’s appeal for bids, Alaska Airlines has committed to continue offering its cheap fare flights to Adak for next two years.
The Transportation Department of U.S. will review the bid made by Alaska Airlines and is likely to make a decision on giving contract to the airline in the coming weeks.
