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.
