Kenai puts P2012 to work on Alaskan operations
Kenai Aviation is leading the way in Alaskan operations with its P2012 Traveller. The company believes other operators will be quick to acquire one once it proves its capabilities.
This P2012 Traveller is going to serve the local communities of Alaska.

Alaska-based charter, flight-seeing and flight training provider Kenai Aviation has purchased a P2012 Traveller from Tecnam at the Sun 'n Fun aerospace expo in Florida.

“We are excited to bring a new aircraft to market here in Alaska," says owner and director of operations Joel Caldwell. "We believe the Tecnam Traveller fills a great need here, and that as we prove its capabilities, other operators will be quick to follow us in acquisition of the aircraft type.”

Comfortably accommodating nine passengers with one or two crew, the Traveller is a new-generation, turbocharged piston powered, twin-engine, high wing, fixed landing gear aircraft. Kenai customers will enjoy premium interiors, in-seat power, higher class leg room and under-seat storage space.

The TKS de-ice capabilities and the rugged design of the aircraft will allow Kenai to provide reliable and on time service to local communities through the challenging weather environment of Alaska.

“We are delighted that Kenai Aviation chose the P2012 Traveller; it is the right aircraft for its operations and for the Alaska landscape,” says Tecnam managing director Giovanni Pascale.

With the P2012, Kenai Aviation will be launching a scheduled service to provide daily flights to three south central Alaska communities out of Anchorage; Kenai, Homer and Valdez.
