ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KSKA-FM) — Some Alaska regional air carriers say they have cut services to communities and positions from their payrolls in response to the coronavirus outbreak. Alaska Public Media reported the cuts follow a March 20 appeal by Republican Gov. Mike Dunleavy for residents to stop non-essential travel. Ravn Air is Alaska’s largest regional carrier and has announced it will temporarily cut 146 of about 1,300 positions. Northwest Alaska carrier Bering Air has announced a significantly reduced schedule. Warbelow’s Air in Fairbanks says tour charters have been canceled but that it will provide essential services including medical evacuations and fuel and mail delivery.
