Grant Aviation halts Homer operations



STAFF REPORT

Less than three years after expanding 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 and the first day with no service into Homer was Feb. 10, Grant Aviation station manager Phaedra Bennett told the Homer News.

Requests for reasons about the company's change of plans were referred to Grant Aviation's Anchorage offices. No response had been received by noon Wednesday.

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.
