Initially, the company will provide airline services for Alaska Airlines. McGee Air Services will operate as a vendor to Alaska Airlines and will compete for Alaska contracts in select cities. As the company develops the infrastructure and processes, McGee Air Services will evaluate opportunities to serve other airlines.

McGee Air Services will operate independently and will be led by aviation veteran Dean DuVall, who will serve as the president, effective immediately.

During his 29 years with Alaska Airlines, DuVall formerly served as managing director of station operations, regulatory compliance and fuel, as well as the managing director of supply chain management and previously was the managing director of IT customer support and infrastructure.

Alaska Airlines links its roots back to 1932 when Linious "Mac" McGee created McGee Airways. For McGee Air Services, the name represents Mac McGee's strong work ethic, entrepreneurial spirit, and fortitude.
