The new airline wants to connect the United States and Asia with stops in Alaska. The first such flights will start in mid-2022.
North Pacific Airlines is a new U.S. carrier that plans to deliver cheap flights between the U.S. and Asia continents through its transfer base in Alaska, Insider said Monday (9.08).
The authors of Air Startup want to model their business on Icelander, which provides links between the United States and Europe via Reykjavk. North Pacific officials believe Alaska and Asia are the two most expensive destinations for American travelers, and a new carrier has been set up to fix this.
– Alaska is a unique place that presents all kinds of challenges, and people who don’t know it think they are intimidated by Alaska’s unique challenges. We come from here, we operate here. This is our house – he said Rob McKinney, Founder of North Pacific Airlines, Rowan is the current Managing Director of Alaska.
North Pacific Airlines plans to launch flights to Japan and South Korea and several cities in the United States including Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Las Vegas and Orlando. Flights to Asia will be operated by a transfer base in Anchorage, the first of which is scheduled to launch in the early summer of 2022.
– Even if flights are planned to allow quick and convenient connections, we will Provides packages that allow travelers to spend a few days in Alaska and take a flight that takes them deeper into the state. Our goal is to encourage people to spend a couple of days here, catching salmon or dog rides on a glacier, or just what to do in Alaska – Added McKinney.
The Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport in Alaska is already used by cargo carriers as a transit point between Asia and North America.
