Less than three years after expanding its operations to include Homer, Grant Aviation has dropped the southern Kenai Peninsula from its schedule. The last day of flights in and out of the Homer Airport was Feb. 9, Grant Aviation station manager Phaedra Bennett said.

Questions about the company's change of plans were referred to Grant Aviation's Anchorage offices, which declined to return phone calls.

However, Bennett said the changes were being made "indefinitely. I don't know about this summer," she said.

Communities serviced by Grant Aviation include Anchorage, Bethel, Cold Bay, Dillingham, Dutch Harbor, Emmonak, Kenai, King Salmon and Valdez. Bennett said Bethel was "impacted minorly" by company changes.
