Era Alaska Renames Itself Ravn Alaska

A regional air carrier in Alaska is undergoing a name change.

Era Alaska says in a Thursday release that it will rename itself Ravn Alaska.

Other airlines in the company also will get new names. Era Aviation will become Corvus Airlines. Hageland Aviation and Frontier Flying Service will now be known as Ravn Connect.

The company says the change is to decrease confusion and distinguish the airline from others in the industry that also carry Era in their names.

The new names will be phased in over the next few months.

The company says it provides daily passenger and cargo flights to nearly 100 Alaska communities.
