What about animals or pets? In keeping with ADA regulations, Grant Aviation makes every effort to accommodate service animals. However, their planes do not have a separation between the cockpit and the cabin, and loose animals can be a threat to the safety of the flight. Pets need to be in kennels, and travelling with them is not free. It costs $30/RT (applies to ENA/ANC only).
Regarding refunds and ticket changes, all tickets are valid for use only on flights operated by Grant Aviation. Tickets are valid for 1 year from the date of purchase. No refunds will be issued after 90 days from the date of purchase. Flight changes are permitted free of charge. Tickets can be transferred between passengers.
Like other airlines, Grant Aviation has a loyalty program called “Quyana Rewards” wherein frequent flyers can earn points they call as “segment” in each flight. Members can redeem a free one-way ticket for every 5 segments and a round trip for 10 segments, anywhere Grant Aviation flies. Another good thing about their reward system is it never expires. Signing up for this program is free.
