Equipment Issue Forces ERA to Reroute Passengers

Aaron Selbig


     Era Alaska was rerouting some passengers to other airlines Sunday due to equipment upgrades on its aircraft. In a press release Sunday, Era officials said that upon learning that that the cockpit voice recorder common to its entire fleet did not fully conform to all regulatory specifications, the company’s senior management grounded all Era Alaska planes.
     Era Sales and Marketing Director Steve Smith apologized to affected passengers, saying the company had acquired the additional parts necessary to upgrade all of the voice recorders and expected all upgrades to be completed in a few days.
     Hageland Aviation, another separate Era Alaska carrier, is not affected by this equipment upgrade.
