Anchorage Air Taxis & Charters

Most of Alaska lies off the road system, making transportation by air a way of life. It’s why 1 in 78 Alaskans is a pilot.

But they’re not flying jets. Flights to reach more remote areas happen on wheeled planes or floatplanes with only a handful of seats. Some are equipped with skis to land on snow.

Many of these planes depart from Anchorage. Alaska’s largest city is a hub for reputable air taxi and charter services—it’s also home to the largest floatplane base in the world, Lake Hood.

The companies on this list offer a range of services, such as flightseeing, fly-in fishing trips, or flights to remote destinations.

For bookings, contact the operators directly or visit their websites for availability and pricing.
