Another airline is stepping in to provide air taxi service to the village of King Salmon in Southwest Alaska.
PenAir is pulling service from the village as it moves away from providing air service to Bush communities in an effort to focus instead on its hub communities.
KTUU-TV says Grant Aviation is stepping in to provide service to King Salmon. The two airlines say they are working closely to ensure a smooth transition to the Bristol Bay area.
Grant Aviation plans to open the King Salmon operation on Oct. 1. It will begin daily commuter services starting Wednesday.
