Lynden Adds Airports

By Karen Robes Meeks

Lynden Air Cargo is widening its Alaskan reach. The company announced plans to expand its scheduled service points to include St. Mary’s and Emmonak, Alaska.

To better serve customers and support local industries in Western Alaska, Lynden will offer year-round scheduled air freight service on Tuesdays and Fridays starting April 30.The service will start and finish in Anchorage, Alaska. Along with fish and general cargo, the company will carry bypass mail to and from both areas in its commercial C-130 aircraft.

“We have traditionally served these areas with charter service to support seasonal fishing operations, but we are now proud to offer regular and reliable airfreight service all year,” says Lynden Air Cargo President Rick Zerkel. “Lynden Air Cargo has been delivering freight in Alaska for many years, and we know the challenges and terrain. We handle oversized loads and small packages alike with our scheduled service and flag stops to points in the Alaskan bush. We can arrange the right flight to get cargo delivered to practically any village or city in the state.”
