PenAir, an Anchorage, Alaska-based regional airline, has begun offering service between Presque Isle, Maine, and Boston.

The carrier, which launched the new flights on Thursday, plans three daily nonstop round trips between Northern Maine Regional Airport and Logan International Airport Monday through Friday and two each on Saturday and Sunday, according to a report in the Bangor Daily News.

PenAir started the flights about nine months after Colgan Air informed federal regulators that it would stop serving the route. In April, Colgan's corporate parent, Pinnacle Airlines, filed for Chapter 11 reorganization.
