Re: Unalaska/Dutch Harbor DUT/PADU now that 7H-Ravn/Penair is shut down

Dutch Harbor is not a "subsidized" EAS market. Alaska always ran it as a "capacity purchase agreement" with PenAir for the past 10 years (or more?).

After the S20 overrun, Penair stopped flying and Ravn operated the route using its Dash 8-20...
