Flyers from Adak can now heave a sigh of relief and continue booking air tickets at low fares on Alaska Airlines for their travel to onward destinations being currently offered by the airline.
Alaska Airlines, which was earlier in a fix whether to continue offering its service to Adak, has now decided that it will continue serving the residents of Adak, although on a trial basis.
Dispelling the concerns over the continuance of services, Alaska Airlines has become 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.
Favorably responding to DOT’s request for bids, Alaska Airlines has decided in principle to go for it and has committed to continue offering its flights to Adak for a period of next two years.
The U.S. Department of Transportation will be reviewing the bid made by Alaska Airlines recently and is likely to make a decision on awarding contract to the airline in the coming weeks.
