PenAir (Peninsula Airways) was founded way back in 1955 by 19 year old Orin Seybert with one 1946 twin-seat Taylorcraft aeroplane.
PenAir has since become Alaska’s largest commuter airline operating an extensive scheduled passenger and cargo services to over 85 communities, as well as charter and medevac services.
Flight operations are centred around the main base at Anchorage International airport with "sub" hubs at King Salmon, , Dillingham, , Cold Bay, Dutch Harbour, Alaska. To be able to operate in extreme conditions and in varied terrain PenAir operates a fleet of 40 aircraft each suited to the very different flying conditions.
Depending on destination you could fly in a vintage seaplane with just nine seats or a very modern Saab 340 comfortably seating 30 passengers.
Penair offers a good range of fares including Web specials, Weekend fares and Fur Rondy special fares for Alaska’s largest winter carnival.

PenAir is a "community" airline in the truest sense of the word. Operating from large and small airports with tarmac runways to grass or dust strips which are only accessible at certain times of the year PenAir connect some of the most isolated communities in North America. Some are so remote they can only be reached by float plane landing on water. With out the regular services some of these small communities would be quite cut off from the rest of the world, miles from anywhere they rely heavily on PenAir for it’s passenger and cargo services. In an emergency they operate a Medical evacuation service offering another life line to good folks of Alaska. This is the kind of airline we applaud...
Pen Air’s network is operated by 40 very different aircraft from vintage Flyingboat to modern SAAB 340 turbo jets.
