Hayden, Idaho-based Empire Airlines in April placed its first two Cessna SkyCouriers into service, becoming the second FedEx Feeder carrier to operate the regional freighter type. Empire now has five of the regional freighter type in service.

The FedEx feeder operator also commenced revenue flights from Anchorage (ANC) to Fairbanks (FAI) with its first ATR 72-600F in March 2022, and added a second later that year.

Empire acquired another West Coast FedEx feeder operator, Fresno, Ca.-based West Air, in January 2022, and added thirty-three more Cessna 208B aircraft to its fleet.

Komberec has more than twenty-three years of leadership experience at Empire Airlines. He also serves on the Regional Airline Association Executive Board of Directors as well as the Coeur d’Alene Airport Advisory Board.

Komberec previously worked for Boeing as a machinist before embarking on a career as an aviator, which led him to executive roles with American International Airways and Western Pacific Airlines.

Cargo Facts Symposium, taking place live Oct. 25-27 at the Omni San Diego, is the essential event for stakeholders in the freighter and air cargo industry.
