Island Air Service Attempting To Attract Tourists To Kodiak
wanting to make their way to Kodiak will soon have a new option for
travel between the island and the mainland, at least for the summer.
KMXT’s Casey Kelly reports.
Air Service will begin regular flights between Kodiak and Homer three
times a week starting May 22nd and ending September 13th. General
Manager Olivia Terry says the company sees a lot of need for the
(Terry 1 :19s “…flight back to Homer.”)
will leave Kodiak at noon on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays,
arriving in Homer about an hour later. The return flight to Kodiak
leaves Homer a little after 1:00 and arrives around 2 o’ clock. One-way
tickets will be 289 dollars, while roundtrip travel will cost 538
dollars. Terry says this isn’t the first time Island Air has offered
regular service to Homer, but she says they didn’t work out because
most people didn’t know about them.
(Terry 2 :22s “…so, we’ll see.”)
Kodiak Island Convention And Visitor’s Bureau Executive Director Janet
Buckingham as one of those excited about Island Air’s new service to
(Buckingham 1 :07s “…yahoo for Island Air!”)
says one thing she’s been asked repeatedly by people interested in
coming to Kodiak are the different ways to get to the island, and she
says there’s definitely demand for more service.
(Buckingham 2 :28s “…way to get here.”)
