Customer service, routes and prices to remain the same for Alaskans
June 02, 2005
Executives from both organizations
expect to be able to close the transaction within the next 45
to 60 days. Under the agreement, EAIG will acquire all airline
operations and will operate under the name Era Aviation, Inc.
SEACOR will retain ownership of the Era Aviation Center which
provides fixed based services to corporate aircraft and will
continue to provide services under contract to the airline.
"We are very excited about the transaction," said Paul Landis. "EAIG shares our vision of what Era is and can be in the future, and we look forward to bringing Era into a new phase of growth and success."
The acquisition will not affect current flights and customers can expect the same superior service during the transition.
"We look forward to working with SEACOR to make this transition as smooth as possible," Landis said. "As always, safety, customer service, and employee satisfaction will remain our top priorities during and after the acquisition."
In addition to passenger service,
Era provides an important air cargo link throughout the state.
Era airline flights serve Southcentral and Western Alaska, using
a combination of deHavilland Dash-8 and Twin Otter aircraft.
