Flights from Kake

The Kake Seaplane Base (not to be confused with the Kake Airport) is a public-use seaplane base located in Kake, a city in the Petersburg Census Area in Alaska, a state in the United States. The airport is owned by the southeast region of the State of Alaska, and is included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011-2015 as a general aviation facility. 

The airport is classified as a general aviation facility even if it provides scheduled services because the 'commercial service' category requires at least 2,500 enplanements per year, whereas the airport only recorded some 1,440 in 2010. 

During the 12-month period ending in December 2012, the airport has served at least 1,470 passengers, all headed to Juneau, the sole destination from the airport. 


Where to go

The Kake Seaplane Base only serves one scheduled passenger route, Juneau, which is covered by Air Excursions. The said schedule passenger service is also subsidised by the U.S. Department of Transportation via the Essential Air Service Program. Aside from the said flight, no other flights are available from the airport. Juneau, the capital city of Alaska, is known for the Tongass National Forest, a national protected area that will delight nature lovers. The city is also home to the Juneau Public Library, built on top of a parking garage along South Franklin Street near the Red Dog Saloon; it is where a spectacular view of and across Gastineau Channel can be enjoyed.


Currently, the Kake Seaplane Base does not serve international short haul destinations. Travellers who are looking for flights to these types of destinations are advised to use other airports scattered across Alaska, like the Juneau International Airport, the Ted Stevens-Anchorage International Airport, the Fairbanks International Airport, and many others.


Similarly, the Kake Seaplane Base does not serve long haul flights. Travellers who are after these destinations should look for other airport options that are convenient for them, or even fly to other states through municipal, domestic, or international airports scattered across Alaska. Suggested airports include Fairbanks International Airport, Ted Stevens-Anchorage International Airport, Juneau International Airport, King Salmon Airport, and many others. Airlines that serve these airports include Alaska Airlines, Grant Aviation, Condor, Ravn Alaska, United Airlines, Wright Air Service, Japan Air Lines, Delta, among others. 


How to get out

Travellers are better off catching flights through other airports aside from the Kake Seaplane Base as the said airport only provides flights to Juneau. There are many airports in Alaska to choose from, and almost all

are accessible through the interstate highways and roads.
