Ketchikan is just 90 minutes by air from Seattle, with several daily flights in and out provided by Alaska Airlines. Scheduled daily jet service is also available to and from Anchorage, Juneau, Sitka, Petersburg and Wrangell.

Ketchikan International Airport is located on Gravina Island, a five minute ferry ride to town. Airport shuttle vans and a water taxi service meet all flights, transporting passengers and luggage from baggage claim to your Ketchikan destination. Connections to outlying areas via wheeled and floatplanes are available at the airport. Ground service and parking space is also available for private aircraft traveling to Ketchikan.


Local commuter air carriers connect Ketchikan with all of the outlying communities of southern Southeast Alaska, and Prince Rupert, Canada. The aircraft are called “floatplanes” because of the large floats that allow them to take off and land safely on the water. Floatplanes can land in bays and harbors to access waterfront communities and on lakes to reach remote recreation areas and fishing hot spots.
