A person can fly on a commercial jet from Seattle to Ketchikan, non-stop in just 90-minutes. This makes “getting here” a breeze for would-be independent travelers.
For the past couple years, Delta Airlines has offered seasonal flights to and from Ketchikan, 2021 is no different.

Mask Up and Go!
I repeat. You much purchase your tickets before March 22, 2021 to take advantage of these amazingly low fares. Alaska Airlines is also waiving change and cancellation fees for tickets purchased by March 31, 2021. And, beginning April 1, the airline will eliminate change fees on Main and First Class fares everywhere Alaska flies. Delta Airlines is advertising $99 Seattle-Ketchikan fares for travel between May 29 and September 30, 2021.
