Alaskan operator accepts delivery of the second P2012 Traveller to expand operations.

Lakeland – Tecnam and Kenai Aviation are pleased to announce the addition of a second Tecnam Traveller to the Kenai fleet in just one year. After the first aircraft pickup at the 2022 Sun n Fun, Kenai Aviation has been operating the P2012 Tecnam Traveller since April 2022.

The P2012 Traveller has exceeded the needs of Kenai’s Aviation Operations in Alaska. The high level of customer satisfaction on the routes flown also testifies the well-matched pairing between the Aircraft and the Operator. This second aircraft acquisition allows Kenai Aviation to double frequencies and better serve the local Alaskan communities.

The Traveller, which comfortably seats nine passengers with one or two crew, is a new generation, turbocharged, twin-engine, high wing, fixed-wing aircraft. The addition to Kenai Aviation’s fleet provides customers with cost-effective and diverse configuration options, while still delivering the experience that discerning travelers expect, such as premium interiors, in-seat power, superior legroom and under-seat stowage.

The aircraft’s TKS de-icing capabilities and robust design allow Kenai to provide reliable and on-time service to communities in Alaska’s challenging weather environment.
