A Few Things about Flying to Yakutat, Alaska
Two small flights a day come to Yakutat, Alaska, from Alaska Airlines. It is the only major airline to operate regularly out of the Yakutat Airport. The reason is that cheap flights to Yakutat must hold less than 30 passengers. The only exceptions are emergency landings. The airport is a very small hub that can't accommodate regular large-carrier traffic. Located three miles southeast of the town Yakutat, the airport is remote. Don't be surprised if you see a moose or another wild animal on the empty runways between flights.
Getting from the Airport
The remote area around Yakutat Airport does not support a public transit service or a steady ground taxi service, but rental vehicles are available. They are four-wheel drive models that can handle the rough Alaskan terrain. Leo's Vehicles, Economy Auto Leasing and Situk Leasing are the three places to rent a vehicle. You must reserve the vehicle prior to the trip, and Orbitz.com can help you make these arrangements.
The Weather in Yakutat
Alaska is the northernmost state in the United States. That means cool weather for anyone arriving at the Yakutat Airport. Expect temperatures as high as 60°F in the summer and as low as 17°F in the winter. Pack for snow, as the Yakutat area receives the largest amount of snow in Alaska; the area averages about 219 inches per year.
Things to Do in Yakutat
The outdoor life is the biggest attraction to the Yakutat area. Surfers flock to the beach to surf the warm Pacific waters that can produce some big waves. If surfing isn't your idea of a vacation activity, you can hike out to the Hubbard Glacier. This rapidly advancing ice body is the longest tidewater glacier. The area around it provides great pictures at the best bargain for the area-free. Book your cheap flights to Yakutat on Orbitz.com to ensure that your vacation begins and ends on a good note.
