The US Department of Transportation (DOT) has revoked the Part 135 certificate of public convenience and necessity issued to Andrew Airways (Kodiak), due to the airline failing to commence any such operations, according to a filing seen by ch-aviation.

Andrew Airways was awarded its certificate in July 2018, to engage in scheduled interstate flights covering persons, property, and mail. However, the DOT said it was notified by the Federal Aviation Administration on March 6, 2024, that the Alaska-based carrier had not commenced the scheduled operations for which it was found fit, so its authority "must be revoked".

ch-aviation reached out to Andrew Airways for comment.

According to Alaska’s Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development, Andrew Airways Inc.’s status is in good standing. In March, the company filed its 2024 biennial report for the period ending December 31, 2023, stating the company is 100% owned by Andrew Odean.

However, its website is unavailable and its social media accounts have been dormant since 2020.

When it filed its original application for the certificate in 2017, Andrew Airways was looking to operate scheduled services between Kodiak and 11 Essential Air Service water points, adding traffic to the United States Postal Service “as well as inter-state passengers connecting from other carriers at Kodiak including Alaska Airlines and Ravn Alaska.” At the time, it operated a fleet of seven aircraft, including one Cessna (single piston) 206, four DHC-2s, and two Piper (twin piston) PA-32s.
