Flights to Valdez

Are you feeling lucky?
Welcome to the

Valdez Airport.

When flying to Valdez on a normal commuter airline you must first fly to the Anchorage(ANC) airport. From there you may take a flight with RavnAir to get to Valdez. They offer services to Valdez twice daily, with a morning and evening flight.

This is Alaska so it is possible to find a charter option to fly you to Valdez but one would need to do a lot of calling around to find a Part 135 Air Taxi.

Flights in and out of Valdez can be temperamental, and the planes flying in are smaller and subject to weather. Sequential multiple day cancellations are not infrequent. Cloud cover, fog, blizzards, and high winds are all able to close out flights to and from Valdez. There are no scheduled buses to Valdez to rely on for a backup.

Glaciers North, Islands South
