Ravn Alaska will begin flying to St. Mary’s on May 6. Ravn will fly direct, roundtrip flights between Anchorage and St. Mary’s each Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

The airline is not adding jobs in St. Mary’s. Instead, it is relying on Ryan Air to provide ground support.

 

Last year Ravn went through bankruptcy and has since entered new ownership.

 

St. Mary’s is the second Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta community that Ravn is flying to. The airline began flying between Anchorage and Aniak, located along the middle Kuskokwim River, in February.
