Airlines & Ferry Information

Prince of Wales Island and Craig Alaska are served by both water transport and commercial air from Ketchikan, Alaska. Ketchikan Alaska is located near 90 minutes north of Seattle by air.

Seattle to Ketchikan

All direct flights to Ketchikan originate from the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in Washington State. Alaska Airlines is the only carrier currently providing jet service to Ketchikan. During the summer at least 4 non-stop flights arrive daily in Ketchikan from Seattle, starting early in the morning through late afternoon, so further connections to the Island are convenient.
