Reeve Aleutian Airways
Reeve Aleutian Airways was an airline company from Alaska.
Reeve Aleutian Airways was formed soon after the end of World War II, by Bob Reeve. Starting flights in 1947, the airline concentrated on inter-Alaskan services only, services being flown from Anchorage to the Aleutians, as the company's name suggested.
Reeve Aleutian never expanded route beyond the Alaskan frontiers. It did, however, grow into a major regional airline, using types as Lockheed 188's and Boeing 727's. The airline beneffited from Alaska's popularity among lower United States and international tourists.
Reeve Aleutian received a new wave of promotion in the 1990s when an article was published about the airline on Airliners. It was forced to cease operations, however, by the middle '90s.
