Northern Pacific Airways has unveiled its newly painted Boeing 757 as well as its operational ambitions.
The ceremony took place on the grounds of San Bernardino International Airport (SBD) in California on January 18, 2021. The 757 of Northern Pacific was displayed in a hangar owned by Certified Aviation Services, which performs MRO services to the airline.
According to the firm, the aircraft has been painted in a black and white livery that reflects Alaskan nature.
A black edge surrounding the cockpit windows was also included in the livery, which is a feature associated with the latest generation of Airbus aircraft such as the A350 and A320neo.
UsAir received the plane for the first time in 1995. It has also flown with US Airways and American Airlines (A1G), according to Planespotters data (AAL).
Northern Pacific Airways intends to connect destinations across the United States with East Asia via their Anchorage, Alaska hub, using long-range narrow-body aircraft like the 757.
Ravn Alaska, a regional airline, founded the company. The firm bought its first Boeing 757-200 in September 2021, and has since secured orders for many more of the same kind.
The Boeing 757 was discontinued in 2004 and is being phased out by numerous carriers, making it relatively inexpensive to acquire.
Northern Pacific’s CEO Rob McKinney told Airways Magazine that the airline is looking forward to receiving contemporary aircraft soon and is in talks with both Boeing and Airbus about the 737-9 MAX and A321XLR. While both planes have a similar passenger capacity to the 757, they have a longer range.
