Pacific Airways to go out of business

    Ketchikan, Alaska (KINY) - An airline that provided charter flights with floatplanes for 20 years has closed its doors.

    Climbing insurance costs, a floatplane crash last summer and the problems caused by COVID-19 contributed to the decision.

    Harris Air in Sitka also stopped flying in the past year.

    KRBD News reported the airline provided mail service to Meyers Chuck.  The US Postal Service is seeking a replacement carrier.

    Pacific Airways offered a variety of flightseeing tour choices with tours to the Misty Fjords National Monument and Revilla Island.

    They also provided charter flights for hunters and fishermen into the Tongass National Forest.
